Ancient and new together. During a bike ride on ‘De Hoge Veluwe’, one of the National Parks of the Netherlands, I saw this old tree in the middle of the sand plain. Some new treed (about 30 years old) were growing in the neighborhood. All to see when you take for free a white bike and go along the paths. It’s quiet over there; even when lots of tourists are companion you. I cut off the above so it seems like a big spider.
