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,a grandmothe and 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!


Heaven is in Belgium

Ruby Tuesday Poppies and Window Views

I am on holliday, so this means I can do anything I want basically?
I can do a Window View on a Tuesday and a Ruby on a Thursday, it makes no difference, right?
As long as there is SOMEthing, right?

But when rubies and windows all come together ...

No greater window views than the ones in Provence, France.
And when you add some vibrant red poppies, this is what you get.

I saw this one in Fontaine de Vaucluse on our way up to the well. The pink wall, blue shutters, the white fence and red poppies. So French. I loved it. Still do.

This window is at a bakery shop in Le Beaucet. A beautiful little village.
Poppies, cornflower and dandelions, my favourite wild flowers for as long as I can remember.
I wonder what I'm going to find this year? Hmmm.

Beautiful...I am really envious right now. And whenever I see poppies, I think of the movie "The Wizard of Oz."

You are definitely making me want to go to France! So pretty.

I can close my eyes, and smell the bread baking at the bakery... and feel a breeze blowing gently against my skin - NOT - the neighbors are burning trash again, and it's HOT HOT HOT here, and no wind at all:-(
Hope you have a wonderful time in France!

Unknown said...

Love your picture. I just love poppies, I was in a mountain meadow over the weekend that was filled with wild poppies, I've never seen them grow wild like that. I was amazed.
