Downtown Diessen

This is the quiet and peaceful little village my friends live in. Lot's of farms around here for raising crops, pigs, horses, etc. There was a beautiful horse next door and some across the street with a corn field being planted behind their property line. It was really nice to walk from their house to the middle of town. We visited the little shops and walked back with an ice cream cone.

Farm Country

It was early spring when we were there, so it was still cool and the trees were still bare. But for the most part, the weather was good and it was just right for lots of walking.

Fields of Flowers

We were just in time for the Tulip, Daffidil and Hyacinth fields tho! Although, the fields of flowering bulbs are not in Diessen. We had to drive northwest to outside of Den Haag to see them. We also spent some time on a beach by Den Haag and I had little Dutch pancakes with powdered sugar for a snack. Now that isn't something you'd find on our beaches. They were yummy!

    Never heard of the place, but it sure does look nice! Loved the statues. Have you ever found out why that one was Herculus and why he was put there?

    Great page about this little village! It's great to see my former homecountry through your eyes. Those homes are typical for the Netherlands indeed, it reminds me of places where I used to live. Thanks!
