SPECIAL TREE

I love tree’s with an unusual bark. When we were visiting a tropical greenhouse I found a tree called CEIBA INSIGNIS also known as “bottle tree”. It was love at first sight !

PRIMA BALLERINA

Fuchsia’s look like dancing ballerina’s with a colorful dress, you cannot but love them and they are really easy plants, they are a bit tender and most are shade loving and like a bit of moist but some like a spot in the sun and others are really very winterhardy. But they all look pretty !

GIANT WATER LILY

Last week we visited a botanical garden in Meise near Brussels, and they had a huge greenhouse with plants from all over the world. One of those plants was the giant water lily (Victoria Amazonica), very impressive ! I had seen it on tv and on photo’s but not in real life.
