Last Sunday we had a beautiful sunny winter day.
Other places in the world have been suffering from extremely hard winter conditions, but we’ve hardly had any frost in Belgium. Not a single snowflake neither – it’s not that I mind …
Last Sunday we went for a lovely walk on an old vineyard trail. Some of the vineyards are surrounded by an old brick wall back from the beginning of the 19th century. I know, “vineyard” probably isn’t the first thing crossing your mind thinking of Belgium. At a 45 minutes drive from where I live some good quality white wine is produced on a limited scale.
Apart from the small vineyards, the trail also took us to beautiful orchards providing mainly apples, pears, peaches.
I love the scenery of vineyards and orchards, no matter what season. I think there is something beautifully architectural about the symmetric rows that are shaping the landscape. I love the kind of peaceful rhythm, it’s so tranquil.
This is my way of looking at nature, this is what my eyes see.
Along the trail, the sweetest smell of apples came to us and the low standing sun made these fallen apples brighten up and look attractive.
Hope you can also see and enjoy the absolute beauty of these half rotten apples.
At the end of our walk we noticed this charming little chapel, we have loads of these on the Belgian countryside.
