Het Gazebo in the mist !

A cold misty day at Het Gazebo! Thick fog covered half the country! Might have been 3C ! That didn't stop the volunteers getting together for one last round of weeding this year! It was definitely a hot chocolate kind of day! We did enjoy that outside next to a campfire. By lunchtime the trailer was over flowing with weeds! That's it for this year! We enjoyed lunch together then headed to  Galerie Álafran(click here) where there is great collection of contemporary art. Works by Luitgard Schultz(clcik here) caught our attention! His inspiration came from hosta leaves in an Autumn garden! If you have a chance to visit Diepenheim during December and January there will be hosta fun contemporary art at Galerie Álafran Agenda (click here)
Thanks to all who helped and supported Het Gazebo in Diepenheim this year! We're looking forward to getting together in 2020!
