|The photo was taken in the garden of Huis Doorn.|
Huis Doorn ("Doorn House") is a small manor house that lies outside Doorn, a small town near Utrecht, the Netherlands. The 15th-century house was radically rebuilt in the late 18th century in a conservative taste, then redecorated in the mid-19th century, when the surrounding park was laid out as an English landscape garden. The house was purchased in 1919 by Willam II, the last German Emperor, as his residence-in-exile (1920-1941) after World War I. During his years in exile the former emperor kept in shape by sawing down the estate's trees by the tens of thousands over the years and splitting the logs into vast stacks of firewood, denuding the matured landscape. The Dutch government seized the manor house and its household effects in 1945 as German property. Many new trees were planted, so that after 60 years the wooded parkland is recovering.
