Architecture around Belgium is wonderful!! I guess these towns have rich history. They feel calm and relaxed.
Yes, it’s true, especially the smaller cities have a very calm and relaxed atmosphere. And the architecture adds to this charm. It’s a lovely little country this Belgium 😉
Beautiful photos! I especially love the trees with knitted blouses. I saw something similar for the first time in Germany last Christmas and it made me laugh 🙂
Yes,they are funny, I wonder who dressed them, if it’s a legal job or someone wanted to make people happy (like grafitti painters) :))
We’ve been so desperate for spring in this part of Canada. Your photos have made the anticipation that much more wonderful. We’re getting there … slowly! The knitting is always such a treat to see. I’ve been surprised by bits of it here and there in my town, but nothing as colourful and fantastic as this.
Great Photos! Very Interesting blog..
