Serene: The Daily Post Photo Challenge

This week, share a visual moment of blissful quiet.

Sunset over my place.

huge and serene.


Anne Frank Tree[edit]

A famous specimen of the horse-chestnut was the Anne Frank Tree in the centre of Amsterdam, which she mentioned in her diary and which survived until August 2010, when a heavy wind blew it over.[22][23] Eleven young specimens, sprouted from seeds from this tree, were transported to the United States. After a long quarantine in Indianapolis, each tree was shipped off to a new home at a notable museum or institution in the United States, such as the 9/11 Memorial Park, Central H.S. in Little Rock, and two Holocaust Centers. One of them was planted outdoors in March 2013 in front of the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, where they were originally quarantined. [3]

  1. Met eerste oogopslag dog ek agge nee, dit brand by julle ook. Gelukkig sien ek toe dis die son!!! Pragtige blomme daardie!!!!


    1. Dis wat die foto so serene maak- dis my gevoel gewees. My Maandag uitstappie het toe nie gerealiseer nie. Nou word daar eers aan n ander ding gewerk waaroor ek half onseker voel.Daar sal egter insig kom op die regte tyd.

  4. Horse chestnuts 🙂 🙂 Ours are fast asleep. Hope life’s treating you well, Ineke.


    1. THey are full in flowers here. I think there are going to be masses of chestnuts. All is well here. I hope to publish my first part of my Memoirs in about two weeks time. Sounds as if you are also full on the go still although winter is on its way there. Warmly!


      1. That’s exciting! Good luck 🙂 🙂


  5. Pragtige fotos. Die inligting oor die Anne Frank boom het my gefassineer. Ek het nou nog haar lewensverhaal, haar dagboek. Een van my kosbaarste boeke.


    1. Dankie. Ek het die “horse chesnut” hier leer ken. Toe lees ek die inligting en het dit heel interessant gevind. Anne Frank is steeds n gewilde klassieke boek. Jou boek is beslis n juweel om te hê.
