About Me

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!

Macro Monday, Changing Colors




Each year in Spring I look forward to see my Rhododendron burst out in blooms.
It’s always fascinating to see how the colors of the flowers evolve …



… from dark fuchsia pink


to bright pink …





… fading into a more creamier pink




cream with a pink blush


to cream


and cream with little brown spots on it. It will be sad to see them wither.


Macro Monday is hosted by Lisa at Lisa’s Chaos.

Visit my other blog, Heavenin365 for a photo a day with the Canon D40.

Beautiful flowers. I am always sad to see any flowers wilt and dry up. They always make me so cheerful when they are blooming.
