Summer break


After a busy year, we all need to slow down, relax and reload batteries.

Time to enjoy the garden !


7Summer vignette in our garden.


8Alley of plane trees and ‘Aspirin’ roses.




Let’s hope the weather gods will bless us with nice weather the coming days !


After having done some gardening jobs, as trimming hedges,…


…time to relax.


Having barbecues with friends and family.



Enjoying the blooming hydrangeas.



Or taking a nap in our orchard.


I wish each and everyone of you a wonderful Summer Break !

And a Happy 21st of July to all my Belgian friends and readers !
