About Me

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, Le Temps des Cérises …




Cherries … my favorite fruit. They’re the perfect image of Summer to me.
I asked my husband to pull the car over when we drove past a cherry orchard in Ménerbes. I knew they would make lovely rubies!






They look so juicy and shiny you can even see me reflected in them!
They tasted heavenly by the way!

Ooh, I LOVE cherries! One of my favorite fruits, but sadly, I'm allergic and they make my tongue and throat swell up and itch. I can still eat a bit of kriek every now and then though.

Wow I think I would have stayed in that cherry orchid until my tummy was full:-)

Hello Jientje, I haven't been here for a while! Delicious looking cherries - I hardly ever get to see any here in the south of England (nor eat them for that matter...)
