    Fields full of flowers

    by sim1 Updated Jan 29, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing:
    This is a picture that brings out the best memories that I have of the Province of Groningen. Standing in this field of cole-seed, with its beautiful yellow flowers and it's scented flowers brings me back to my childhood.....

    There used to be so many of these cole-sead fields in Groningen, but unfortunately they start to disappear. Other crops seem to be more profitable these days. But I did find this field, and it made me think back to the past.

    I've always loved these fields, the vibrant colour, the smell, it's gorgeous! Close to my friends house there was a field of cole-seed and when it was in bloom, you could find me there. Hahaha, it's a great spot to play hide and seek in, because the plants are so high..... but don't tell the farmer that I did that, hahaha, he probably won't like it ;-)

    The world is flat

    by RENE_CARDOEN Updated Jul 28, 2003

    Favorite thing: The province of Groningen is flat as flat can be. Only the dykes built along the coastline, witch have an elevation between 5 and 10 metres above sea level, can be seen from miles away.

    Fondest memory: Fivelgo:
    Derived from the local river Fivel.
    Wierden :
    To understand the explanation of the word “Wierden” we’ll have to go back to the Iron Age, about 700 BC. At that time farmers of Drenthe moved to the north (Groningen) because of the rich pastureland. They settled down on top of the highest sandbanks to protect themselves against the sea, witch now and then over flew the lower parts of the plain. The people rose up these banks by hand and built houses and churches on it. In this area most of the villages are built on “Wierden” or “Terpen” (synonym).
    As you can see on the picture the "Terpen" or "Wierden" are almost circular and rise up to 9 m above sea level.

    English parc in a cold northern city

    by nighthawk Written Feb 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: At the north side of the town heart is the Noorderplantsoen. A couple of years back it was decided that the parc should be restyled to the original English styled parc it once was. Much protest was heard and it was decided that some trees, which don t belong in an English styled parc, could be left alone.
    Part of the old city walls are hidden underneath the mud.
    It is claimed that one secret underground passage to the Grote Markt (Great Market) is in this parc. Nowadays the entrance is closed and only bats (the animals) are allowed to fly in and out.

    Hooge der AA, west side of the city heart

    by nighthawk Written Nov 14, 2002

    Favorite thing: This is an often photographed spot of our city. Knowing that, I should have walked along the water and taken a photograph from the other side....yet I was too lazy :)
