I like it. I think it looks cool. I heard something about holland being more into caring for the enviroment then most countries.

Leave it to Holland to start something new.  I don't know what to think of it- at least it will not require a lot of watering LOL- Thanks Nat- you always find interesting things!  Love Carolyn :)

I think it's interesting to look at but it really doesn't bring up the idea of 'green' for me.  And I wonder how it would do in a strong storm off the water lol.
loving you
