The White Witches
Wessel van Willemzorg, 1685
The legend of the ‘Witte Wieven’ (‘white ladies’) is well-known in the Netherlands and refers to the ghostly beings that appear as the fog settles over the landscape. Those pure of heart are shown the right path if they find themselves lost, but those dark of heart are lured into the marshes and swamps to be swallowed up forever.
This is why the fog that rose above tulip fields was traditionally welcomed. Fear is unnecessary if your intentions are pure. So make sure the path you take is a righteous one!
