We had a day out in Bruges (Belgium) this week, it is a very old small city that attracts a lot of tourists from all over the world. I intend to do a few posts about Bruges and this is the first one. I’ll show you a bit of old church art. There are lots of churches in Bruges, all well kept and filled with old art.

WE FOUND ONE PIECE OF NEW ART IN AN OLD CHURCH, A FONT

THE SHOEBILL STORK, MY FAVORITE BIRD, WOULDN’T IT BE NICE TO HAVE ONE IN YOUR GARDEN !!?? 😀
This picture I took in a birdpark in Walsrode Germany, they have a male and a female and they are trying to bread with them.
Have a great day.
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 !

FRUIT OF THE ENCEPHALARTOS LAURENTIANUS (giant kwango cycad)
This one is not about flowers but about vacation. We spend a day on a boat in a natural park in Holland, called THE BIESBOSCH with lots of creeks and sweet water, not salt water.
There is so much water all over Holland (the netherlands) that almost every family here has one or more boats.
A FAMILY OUTING
ALL SORTS OF BOATS AS YOU CAN SEE
Alas it was too hot for most animals and all we could see were some gull’s and ducks and a few swann’s.
We enjoyed the cooler wind on the water and watching all the other boats.
Have a great week all and thanks for visiting !
