WEEKLY WINNERS - Royal Parc
More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners
Once a year during April/May, the Royal Palace in Brussels opens its Greenhouses to the public The total floor surface of this immense complex is 2.5 hectares (270,000 square feet). 800,000 liters (over 200,000 US gallons) of fuel oil are needed each year to heat the buildings.
Being an optimist, I went there on a first of May, a bank holiday, where nobody works and everybody is underway when the weather is nice.
and these are my weekly winners :
The first Kings of Belgium were really handsome men. I told myself that this fact got lost in the last two generations. Sad.

with lions sitting on the top
A lemon tree, very unusual for Belgium
When I saw the long line of people waiting to get into the Greenhouses, I lost my courage to admire flowers and preferred to take photos from the park and the castle from outside !
