Now that the weather is warming up the ticks are comming back to life and they are not picky; humans, mammals, birds, as long as it can take blood, it’s ok for a tick.
My husband breeds birds as a hobby and the other day he needed some help as he noticed one of his birds had a huge tick next to it’s eye and I am the tick destroyer in our household as I have a few dogs and grandkids and a husband of course. And as ticks can be life threatening I check for ticks every day.
I removed the tick on the bird and the bird is ok now.
Today I want to show you more pretty sights from Bruges, world famous for it’s handmade lace and visited by people from all over the world. When you walk arround in Bruges you hear so many different languages.
THEY HAVE LOTS OF TRUNCATED TREE’S
A PLATAN WITH NEW LEAFS AND OLD FRUITS, IT’S FRUITS ALWAYS REMIND ME OF LITTLE MEAT BALLS
THE BOAT TRIPS ARROUND THE CITY CENTER ARE ALWAYS VERY POPULAR AS YOU GET TO SEE BRUGES FROM ANOTHER SIDE, BECAUSE OF THIS BRUGES IS ALSO CALLED “VENICE OF THE NORTH”
HANDMADE LACE, FOR CENTURIES MADE IN BRUGES BY WOMEN, YOU CAN STILL LEARN HOW YOU CAN DO THIS BUT IT IS COMPLICATED !!
AND OFCOURSE FOOD AND DRINKS ARE VERY POPULAR IN BELGIUM, WAFFLES, CHOCOLATE AND BEER
AND OFCOURSE BELGIAN BEER
There is a shop in my village that sells over 1500 different sorts of beer, not only Belgian beer, but 1500 different beers; I think that is a LOT !! Mind you I don’t drink beer, I don’t like the taste of it.
WE ALSO VISITED THE BEGUINALE HOUSE IN BRUGES
There are no beguines anymore, their houses are rented out now.
BEGUINALE HOUSES, THEY ALL HAD A SMALL ROOM AND ALL THEY DID WAS PRAY, WORK, SLEEP….
WHEN THERE IS WATER YOU HAVE BIRDS.
AND IN SPRING YOU HAVE CHICKS
AND IN BEAUTIFUL PLACES YOU HAVE PAINTERS
AND ART EVERYWHERE , NEW
Have a great weekend all !! And thanks for visiting.
We went away on a short vacation to England and Scotland. I have been in London once for an exhibition in the Tate Gallery some years ago but I never visited England and Scotland before. We used the ferryboat, also a first time experience, and we had a lovely vacation.
We started in Hull and drove to Windermere where we had a boat trip on the lake, and we were not alone…..there were masses and masses of tourists but of course it is the middle of the holiday season here in Europe.
But enough said, here are the pictures.
WE HAD DRAMATIC SKIES EVERYWHERE WE WENT (AND SOME RAIN OFCOURSE)
LOTS OF GEESE, SWANS AND DUCKS ON THE LAKE IN WINDERMERE
THIS IS WHY THERE WERE SO MANY BIRDS….
AND BOATS FOR THE TOURISTS, THEY WERE ALL COMPLETLY FULL
LOTS AND LOTS OF DOGS
MOSSES AND FERNS ON THE ROCKS
Next stop will be the world famous town of Gretna Green.
Thanks for visiting my blog, enjoy your garden and your holidays !
