Flour mill "De Windhond" ("Greyhound")
Netherlands, Soest, June 2010

In 1737 the people of the village Soest built the windmill "De Windhond". It served until 1921. In the 80-s of the last century there were several attempts to restore the mill to its old glory, but it was only in 2007/08 that the work was finished: http://www.molendatabase.nl/nederland/molen_e.php?nummer=1300

It is wonderful that they finally completed the restoration. It is what you as a foreigner expect to see of a Dutch scene, thanks :)

I think everyone must love the old Dutch windmills. I know I do. Peter, I'm wondering if the crop in the foreground is corn? The leaves look like corn, but Sorghum also looks like corn, just not so tall.

Hasta Luego.

Larry, I am quite ignorant in the "flora area". I asked Aly and she thought it was just maize (Indian corn).
