OUR WORLD - A PARK NEAR BRUSSELS

We are approaching the end of October and the temperatures are unusually high, even warmer than some summer days. We had over 25° C (77 F) and with my son and grandson we  took the opportunity to go to the Domain of Huizingen on the outskirts of Brussels.



The former castle contains now a restaurant and reception rooms for special events.








The Guard house



and the fountain in front of the castle



The trees are still green and only start slowly  to get dressed for autumn (or undress)



Still beautiful flowers



Strange roots coming out of the ground



Many people had the same idea as we had







and for the children there is a very nice playground !

Look at those beautiful blue skies. I haven't even put the central heating on yet. Unheard of as far as I can remember that it is this warm so late in the year.

A great series of shots. I have just read through all the posts that i've missed. I have been so busy lately. It sounded like a fun weekend with Toby. He is so cute and growing tall.
