Bloom Where You're Planted

 

This is a detail under a bay window in a Dutch house.

I love stuff like this.  Here it is in context.

Nijmegen, Netherlands

Lovely detail smile
Ginnie Hart: Thfank you, Cherry!
Only in Europe! Lovely!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Robin. Only in urope! Thanks.
It is really wonderful Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. Not something we see every day in America, right?! smile

I do recognize Amsterdam, second of the left. 's Gravenhage, the Hague on the right.
I think these are coat of arms from 'sister cities.
You always come up with brilliant titles with your fabulous pictures. Great detail.
Ginnie Hart: It makes you wonder why they were on this house...maybe it wasn't a residence but some kind of business? Hartstikke bedankt, MLMA.
It's nice to see that people take pride in their homes Ginnie... i love the detailed carvings...also the wider view of the window....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I didn't grow up with this kind of creativity, Peter, so whenever I see it, I grab the picture. Thanks.
i have seen the twin headed eagle feature in German and French motifs as well as coat of arms. Perhaps there has been a connection historically?
Ginnie Hart: I'd love to know the story behind this, Ayush!!! Thanks.

Great stuff, isn't it, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I still stand and stare at such stuff, Ray! Yes. smile

Excellent Ginnie: I love this sort of detail which must, if we can decode it, which I can't, tell a story
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris, and I so totally agree. I'd love to know the story and all the connections.

a wonderful observation - and Astrid gave already some explanations I wanted to ask for. A lovely, wise title!
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Philine. I really do love stuff like this, which we don't see in America.
That's always been my motto... my other one is... "One day at a time."
Ginnie Hart: That's a good one to couple together with mine, Jacquelyn. smile Thanks.
I love a good coat of arms. Mine would be a pig rampant on a yellow background with the motto nil iligitimum carborundum
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHA! I can see it now, Bill. With all your creativity, you could make it.

Looks good in and out of context, Ginnie - I see they are putting down roots
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Lisl. And yes. Sometimes putting down roots is just what the doctor ordered. smile
that's beautiful, the country i live in is too young for cool stuff like this... good eye for beauty, girl
Ginnie Hart: America, too, Elaine. We just don't see stuff like this, do we! Thanks.
Very attractive frieze. I was able to see some of the same kind in Germany
Ginnie Hart: I love them, Marie, don't you! Thanks. Merci.
This is a delightful work of art.
Ginnie Hart: I love whenever I see them, Martin. Thanks.

Stork and sun flowers good combination
Ginnie Hart: HA! You're right, Adrian. smile
All these details are wonderful and all have a meaning. The stork may refer to The Hague for instance.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Wim. I'd love someone to go over the whole story! smile Bedankt.
Lovely detail Ginnie and I like your presentation of it smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Martin.

That would make a great song title Ginnie, now write the song.
Ginnie Hart: HA! If only I could, Chad. smile

Coats of arms from various important families, I wonder? I like the connection with the repeating flower symbol.
Ginnie Hart: It does make you want to pay attention, Alan, doesn't it! Thanks.
That is very nice indeed Ginnie, and thanks for putting the whole thing on a link so we can see where this is.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian, and you're more than welcome. smile
intéressant ces armoiries
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure there's a story there, Anne. Merci.
Bonsoir Ginnie. Superbe composition with nice détail. Have a lovely evening. Amicalement Antoine.?
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. Merci.
Very nicely observed and captured Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. Merci.
And no doubt it means something also smile
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure it does, John!
Clever one, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Tom.
Sunflowers?
Not tulips?
Come on, Holland! ;o)
Ginnie Hart: You'd be surprised, LC. grin
love crests and symbols like this ... !
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Dennis. Thanks.

I love this! What a sweet and beautiful little detail!!!
Ginnie Hart: We don't build this into our American architecture, Marcie, do we! Thanks.
If these details are any indication, Ginnie, the rest of the house must be pretty interesting, too.
Ginnie Hart: It's funny, Beverly, but I have no recollection of the rest, other than the link I included. Sometimes I concentrate so much on the trees, I don't see the forest...and sometimes vice versa!
An intriguing shot, full of symbolism. Is that a crane on the right holding a snake?
Ginnie Hart: Good eye, Larry! I'd love to know what it all means. Thanks.
