    Default Gerendal, Zuid-Limburg, the Netherlands

    Herewith some pictures I took earlier in the year in the wonderful nature sanctuary 'Gerendal' in the South of Holland.
    The sanctuary has the finest and most diverse display of orchids of the low countries. It also has some sort of a showgarden or rather 'showmeadow' where most of the species have been brought together for public display in a semi-natural setting.
