Verhildersum Borg, Leens, Groningen, The Netherlands

So this is the place where the statue in gardens is located (yesterday's photo). My good 365 (and long-time) Dutch friend Pyrrhula tells me: 'Verhildersum is one of a few remaining ``Borgen`` of Groningen. A "borg" is a brick building, the house of landowners in the past. Often also a farm.' Thank you, Ferry.

It was a great place to visit, excellent information centre and beautiful gardens. Wonderful atmosphere. Oh yes - and a nice cafe/restaurant with a lovely waitress! :) That place in itself is very interesting - more later. More on this borg here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verhildersum and here: http://www.verhildersum.nl/nl/
Very idyllic and great shot

What a lot of work in maintaining that hedge. It’s a work of art on its own. Great shot.

@pyrrhula Thank you, Ferry. Tina has identified Menkemaborg for our next visit to Groningen. We hope not too long. It is a wonderful area, peaceful, spacious. We loved it!
