A mushroom ring is often an indication of an old tree that was once there. Pretty common in Indiana.

Heksenkring.... must have the same root word as "hex"! I didnt see any dancing witches but there is a mole hill near the center. One of hundreds of mole hills. Chris thanks for the folklore

A beautiful circle, Sentient! ´Heksenkring´ or witches' circle it is called here. People once thought that witches had danced in the circle.

And thank you for helping with the questions!

Spud likes mushrooms so I had to post that! The mushrooms are growing like crazy! I like that. Some are more than two handspans wide. My big hands. I take it as a sign of healthy soil ecosystem.

Oh! The mushroom circle. Now, if you were Irish, you would have tales to tell of little people doing mischief. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 19, 2013 at 6:34pm

I like the mushroom circle.

Comment by Daniel W on November 19, 2013 at 4:26pm

There's always something to ponder. Here is a mushroom circle from today.

Chris there is at least some truth to what you hear about Americans.  I think the favorite activity IS shopping.  And watching TV.  I don't know about the streetwalker question.  But it doesn't seem safe.  There might be people who get into their car to go across the street, but not many.   Even so, in my suburban area, there are no stores less than a couple of miles away, and they don't have much.

They do freeze over, but not every year. When there is 5 cm. of ice, a Frisian tradition awakens: can we organize an Elf Steden Tocht? Waterways connect 11 Frisian towns, and once there is 12 or more cm. of ice they organize a skating trip along that route. You must be a very strong and practised skater to finish the trip - no, I don't skate.

Yes, all the shops are here within walking distance, and a few department stores. And I can take public transport for more shopping, and of course the internet. I think there are some big box stores in this country, but I never bothered to think about them; you can only get there by car and I don't drive. Sometimes a neighbour gives me a ride to a garden centre,  also hard to get there without a car.

And can you walk to the shops? I hear lots of things about Americans and I have no idea how much is true. E.g. Americans get their car to go to the other side of the street. E.g. An American woman cannot take a walk on her own for she will be seen as a streetwalker. E.g. favorite pastime in America is shopping. Bill Bryson writes about some of these things and he seems to enjoy it, but I wouldn't. Can you enlighten me?

I didn't realize the canals froze over in winter.  Driving from Brugge through Netherlands to Germany and then north, I remember very flat lands and a low mountain range to the south. 

Google Earth shows very pretty Dutch style houses such as in Amsterdam, Anne Frank style. I see lovely tree lined canals. I couldn't find any roof gardens. 

Do you have stores, i.e. grocery, bakery, butcher, clothing, within walking distance? Do you have the big box stores that contain everything from meats and vegetables to hardware, automotive, etc.? 

According to the land use map, you live in cattle and grains producing area.
