De Naald van Waterloo / The Waterloo Needle, Baarn/The Netherlands

The Waterloo Needle was placed in honor of Willem Frederik, Prince of Orange, later King Willem II. He was the first to repulse the French attack at Brussels (Quatre Bras) in 1815 and held out so long that the Allies led by the English Commander-in-Chief Wellington arrived in time to defeat the French Emperor Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. The memorial was established in 1820.

My wife's sewing room. Lots of great stuff is made here, from fancy Anti-COVID mouth caps to gala dresses.

Beatrix Potter Cottage - Hampton Court Garden Festival - UK2016-135 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

In the crowd at Hampton Court Flower Show in July 2016.
Really nice image Andrew. If it was mine I would be cropping out the guy on the left, My eye is focusing on him and not the lovely lady. It looks like she has a stalker to me.

Thanks, no problem about the dollhouse remark it does resemble that quite a bit. Funny thing is, my wife just finished sewing curtains and a duvet for the dollhouse of a 3-year old 🙂

On a bicycle ride I saw this great looking Ariel 350cc motorcycle from 1938.
Of course, I had to stop and photograph this classic.

After a few minutes the owner emerged and we talked a while about motorcycles and this one in particular.
He told me it's from 1938, he bought it in 1973 from his first monthly salary of 600 Dutch guilders.
A modest, very friendly man and a pleasure to talk with him. The engine started at the second kick and sounded great!
