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!

Ruby Tuesday Waiting …

These garden gloves lay on my table in my patio.
They’re waiting, just like I am.
Waiting for Spring. Waiting for flowers to be planted and weeds to be removed.
It’s not going to happen just yet I’m afraid.
We had -7° this morning. Celcius that is.
The Primulas are going to have to wait just a little while longer…

-7?!? Yikes, that is MUCH too cold. We've had about 10 here and I'm freezing!

Come on spring. I am SO ready to be done with winter.

Wanda said...

I have some waiting too Jientje, it snowed here overnight, but yesterday, I noticed the tips of the daffodils showing!

DescribeHappy said...

Very rusting looking! And I have had lots of thoughts of spring gardening and even though it feels so far away I can not wait! Stay warm sweetie!

James said...

I think we will be seeing pictures from your garden soon. This is just a hint of things to come.

Those pretty but well worn gloves capture the essence of one who loves her flowers. I cannot wait for the spring flowers (my fave) either. It really is rather cold where you are right now. hugs, Kathy.

Stop by my blog if you have time I value your opinion on some of my sons photos I posted. K xoxo

BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! Well worn gloves I might add! Huhoney was out planting 3 new rose bushes just 2 days ago here even though the temp was 45 degrees. He just can't sit still. He almost goes out into the weather with the mind set of "bring it on...I can take it..." and then it cooperates long enough for him to do his thing LOLOLOL. Gotta love it!

Kathy said...

Thank you Jientje, Stephen says thank you too :-).

I'm waiting too, Jientje! It's been in the 30s and 40s but going down to the 20s F tonight! Thanks for joining in on Ruby Tuesday! :)

Brenda said...

You are still having a lot of cold! Great picture.

T.J. said...

Yay! I'm happy to have found you at your "new" site, Jientje. You photos are just splendid!

Dr.John said...

Nice picture. If you lived here the wait would be long.

lisaschaos said...

I'm as ready as your instruments for summer! Brrr. :)

Loree said...
