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

A Walk in the Park

We visited the arboretum in Kalmthout today where the witch hazel shrubs AKA Hammamelis are now in full bloom. I had no idea Winter could be this beautiful!

It sure added a little bit of color to this very gray day.

It almost looks like Spring, doesn't it?

I love this photo, I'll make this my new entry for Project 366, # 29

I hope your Sunday was as great as mine ...

Weekly Winners is hosted by Lotus at I am Lotus.

A beautiful park and a wonderful place for a photo hike.

They are all wonderful Jientje!
Didn't even know witchhazel was this of a plant. :)
Love the next to last shot with the white barked tree drawing your eye in - so serene. A beautiful scene.
So sorry to hear the Big Guy is out of commission for awhile.
