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, A Walk in the Park






There is no better season to photograph natural rubies as Fall. On our recent photo walk at the arboretum, I did not have to look hard, there were rubies behind every corner of the park. Follow me …

Oh it looks like it's still summer over there. We are pretty well into fall here. The red at the park is on the leaves.

A day in the park

Jientje, looks peaceful and relaxing and all those reds it looks like spring. Enjoy the beauty we love to see it! Happy RT!

Stephanie V said...

Wouldn't it be nice to study there by those beautiful red flowers?

Lovely, lovely stuff, as always - but the real treasure in all of that is the RedHead with the Pink Slippers.

Suki said...

What lovely scenery! Sadly, we don't have such beautiful countryside in our island. The hot weather doesn't help much.

Miranda said...

Beautiful! I love the last one, so peaceful.

Thank you for the tour of the park. And the girl with the red hair in the last photo so fits this as well. Wonderful RT my Belgian Bombshell :) Aloha

Nature at its best I believe. One of my favorite seasons....and it really doesn't show itself here in the desert....I have to take a ride for about an hours to see the colors which I will probably do next week when I am recovering and get CABIN FEVER....hmmm an idiom I believe...I will have to put that one on my post next week! :)

Thanks Jientje for sharing your walk with us. You can almost see Autumn in the pictures.

What a nice promenade ! We have an Aboretum somewhere in Brussels too. I remember my father liked to walk there, but I don't know anymore where it was, lol !
I was in Nivelles yesterday but I am already up with my idioms !
