My loyal reader Charles has told me that in Holland, gorse is called stekelbrem. Here’s some frosty stekelbrem to brighten your evening. 🙂

    • Stechginster… Deutsch ist eine schöne Sprache. Ich lernte die Sprache durch die Beobachtung deutschen TV in den 60er und 70er Jahren. ARD war viel besser als der niederländischen TV. Star Parade, Hit Parade und Disco waren meine Lieblings-Programme. Sprechen und Schreiben ist etwas schwierig 😉

      German is a beautiful language. I learned the language by watching German TV in the 60s and 70s. ARD was much better than the Dutch TV. Star Parade, Hit Parade und Disco were my favorite programs.

      • Duitse taal – moeilijke taal.
        Je schrijft heel goed Duits.
        Ik heb zojuist een e-mail in het Nederlands. Ook niet gemakkelijk te vertalen.
        Wat betreft de tv, heeft de Nederlandse altijd de beste ideeën.
        Vind ik …

        Danke, danke 😉 Niederländisch ist tatsächlich schwierig.
        Sie haben Recht. Unsere TV-Produzenten sind verrückt, aber sie haben gute Ideen.
        Selbst die BBC kauft die Ideen.

  1. Just looked up the Spanish and it’s Tojo which is not as descriptive as our Northern Europe descriptions. But keeping with the theme, my dad lives in Furzehatt Way (I think furze is another name for gorse?)

    • Yes, that’s right! That must be a cheerful street, in a flower district.
      As a child I lived in a flower district. Much later I realized that there were no flowers at all, only trees (hence my deviation for bark. Actually Lucy discovered that, by showing bark pictures.)
