Rare opportunity May 20, 2015
An internet community I am part of organized a meet-up at the end of May. The perfect location for that time of year was the Japanse garden at the Clingendael estate in Den Haag (The Hague). This is an old Japanese garden, created at the beginning of the 20th century, and has therefor historic value.

The garden is only open 6 weeks in Spring and 2 weeks in Autumn, because the garden is extremely fragile: Mossbeds, rare trees and colorful plants. Waterways and small paths are leading through the garden, while oriental objects such as a lanterns, a bridge and a pavillion are present.

Gardeners are at work with pruning and other jobs, and they keep an eye on the visitors to see they do not damage the trees, and don't take any plant material from the garden. So it was a no for any pine cone we saw :( however we could understand this. The garden is really beautiful and ofcourse it has to remain beautiful!
