Yep, warning in advance, fifty shades of pink in this post! With Spring in full bloom it’s key to seize the day ’cause nothing so delicate and briefly as those sugary pink cherry-tree flower pop-ups, right?!
Staying local on this ‘hike and seek’ with a trip to Boniverlei in neighbouring town Edegem. Each April traffic on this rather busy road slows down as one can not but admire the fluffy clouds on either side.
Are you ready for your pink shot? Here we go!
Pink…always in season…
On the off chance that you’re getting a blossom overdose, you can recover in nearby park ‘Romeinse Put’ which will set your colour perception and parameters back to normal.
Will you be joining me next time? There’s a trip to Limburg scheduled if my health permits (long story) and we still have to round up on the South Africa series.
…yes, there are still certainties in life! In this locked world, the door to nature remains wide open, whether it’s sticking your nose into the growing herbs on your own balcony or exploring the wildlife in a local park.
You come and go, you come and go
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams
Red, gold, andgreen
(lyrics Karma Chameleon – Culture Club)
Putting all senses on focus will help to pick up the latest birdie twitters on thé pop-up event of the year, called Spring.
No event is complete without a colourful decor…
…or attendees in fluffy outfits, searching for snacks and, yes, well, some a little overdressed…
Pretty crowded pool party at times, with Egyptian goose, moor hens and the mallard ducks all having babies!
Want to attend a similar event? Just step outside and take a local nature hike. Use this time to explore your ‘close-to-home-world’ and above all:
Live life in bloom!
Hope you enjoyed this Spring pop-up!
Next time some day-trip inspiration, close to home (as I don’t see us travelling soon just yet) and, of course, there’s also SA’s Garden route to continue further, so stay tuned and keep inspired!
