Ardennes In Early Spring
We went to the Ardennes for the Easter weekend. It's a beautiful mountainous region in the south-east of Belgium. It's one of the few more-or-less natural reserves we have in this country, excellent for walking. And photography of course.
Can you smell the resin?
The area is criss-crossed by small streams and rivulets. Sometimes there are small bridges or trees laid over them. But sometimes you have to wade through, as we had to do at this point.
Spring is in the air!
I used to eat these when I was a baby.
We heard a strange sound and looked up. It's a flight of cranes flying to the north.
These ladies are not native but immigrants from North-America. My brother lives on a bison farm.
