David and I made a quick dash to Edam for some peppery cheese and festive cheer. Every time I visit, the larger bike is painted/decorated in an eye-catching manner (reflecting the season). The smaller bike is a new addition to the bridge.
Note the tiny chandeliers and birdcages - and peacocks adorning the bikes! Click photos to view detail.
Growing up in the South, I never thought of stalks of cotton as a seasonal accent!
A winter wonderland window display, dusted with "snow."
A fresh, (mostly) natural Christmas wreath.
Mistletoe tied with red ribbon and a star made of tree branches.
Rich colours combined in a giant stoneware pot outside a private residence.
A narrow bridge that lifts for passing boats.
