When I was doing my round in the garden I suddenly saw a beautiful white flower between the leafs of my fig tree, when I did some further investigation I saw the top of a carrot and from there a long stem with a white flower and buds, I never sow carrots in the garden ( I do in the greenhouse but I use ribbons with seeds on) so these beautiful flower must be a present from the birds. Thank you birds ! I am going to sow a lot of carrot seeds in the garden now to have carrotflowers!!
Have a great week and keep cool as the temperatures are rising fast !!!
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.
