About Me

My photo
Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother, not a grandmother,I don't know if I'll ever be, but I'll let you know in due time! Oh and um ... I am a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!

Summer Stock Sunday, Summer in Provence

Beautiful windows ...

A picnic in the shade with a glass of cool rosé wine ...

A sunflower field ...

Lavender, poppies and wild flowers ...

Or a beautiful sunset ...
Um ..., no the city was NOT on fire ... ;-)

Summer does not get any better than this ...

Waving at you from ...



my comfortable chair in the shade ....

Gorgeous is an understatement!!
I am sure you are having a wonderful time. I haven't been here often...because I simply cannot look at your header! macro shots of insects make me shiver, sorry about that, I know it's weird but I cannot help it!
The sunflowers are magnificent, they always make me smile.

Absolutely gorgeous Jientje, I wish I was there. My favorite is the window shot - what a winner!

Beautful Jientje, the field of Poppies and the Sunset are my favorite.

Wanda said...

Such beautiful scenery...an ocean of sunflowers...a field of poppies and lavender...and then the burning sunset...one needs a nice comfortable place to sit to digest such views.

You always have the most gorgeous pictures! I'm growing sunflowers on the side of my house this year. The plants are about a foot tall right now, but I'm hoping to get some beauties in the near future. Hopefully, my pics will be as beautiful as yours, but I seriously doubt it.

The crust of the French bread - with butter and black coffe - I want to teleport myself on that picnic cloth between the sunflower and the poppy field! You work is such a beauty!
