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

Looking Back ...

Midweek Blues is hosted by Rebecca at The Dusty Cellar. Make a post with a little or a lot of blue in it and join the fun! You can be as creative as you like, poetry, colors ... moods .. music?

Spring is my favorite season, I just love it when nature comes to life again. But it always whizzes by much too fast. That's what I thought when I was scrolling through my archives a while ago. This picture was taken early March, when the grape hyacinths were nothing but little buds ...

Project 366 # 94

... and this was taken just a few days ago, they're past their peak already!
This is one of the reasons why I love this Project 366. It makes me grab my camera a lot more than I would otherwise. It makes me remember the way things were, sometimes only just a little while ago. Maybe I could do a couple more posts like this, make this a theme maybe?

Grannie has Hyacinths in the living room (lounge) - and hers are now past their prime, as well. But they smell deliciously Spring-like.

Your second flower is my favorite -beautiful! Have a happy Easter:)

That's a good idea, Jientje. It would be like savoring the aroma of things gone.

I like your grape hyacinths pictures. They are excellent photos and soooo pretty.

Like Gattina, our Lilly of the Valleys are getting ready also. We generally have one clump with about half dozen stems.

I love the shallow depth of field you used and you nailed the focus.

I had to smile Jientje! Mine are gone and I took photos that I haven't posted. Just so much spring to capture!
Lovely shots!

Spring and Autumn, that's two of my favorite seasons!

In the Spring, there's an abundance of wildflowers, especially when we have enough rainfall.

This is a pretty and a great closeup of the flower!
