Once in the Royal Gardens


The gloom of the dark, rainy days of spring in Brussels was partially broken by a visit to the Royal Greenhouses. Every year for three weeks, the public has a chance to stroll the grounds and greenhouses built by King Leopold II. Below are a few pictures.

    Apart from the rumour I’ve heard that Belgians cook really good chips, I’d never really considered visiting Belgium.
    I now have a reason. Lovely photographs.

      And there’s the chocolate & beer. Also famous for handmade lace.

        Oh I like all of those things. I’ll have to plan a trip.

    It’s only open to the public for 3 weeks out of the year…wow! Glad you take advantage of that; it’s beautiful.

      There’s a whole area dedicated to the Congo that we didn’t see because it’s being redesigned. It was a fun few hours to walk through but can’t compare to the Keukenhof bulb gardens.

    Would love to visit Belgium one day. I have heard a lot about the cultural monuments and of course…Belgian chocolates.
