LA HULPE PARK

The first time we really had a spring weather day, Bunny and I made a walk through this beautiful La Hulpe park (also called Solvay park)



From far we could see the castle but we went to the other end of the park



This part of an old farm had been transformed into a restaurant. Lots of people come here to have a drink outside with a beautiful view on the park



and the other part of the farm is now a museum where lots of exhibitions take place



The first spring signs








The lake with happy ducks






The view from the restaurant




On our way back we saw the blooming Japanese cherry trees

How beautiful Spring is in your part of the world, my friend. Blossoms and blue skies...and ducks! How wonderful! We have some birds returning, but no blossoms anywhere yet. Hugs from here!

Oh gosh, Gattina this makes me so happy to see these beautiful photos of La Hulpe house and park it takes me back 20 years to when we would walk there with the kids! Lovely to see spring is on the way. I bet those beautiful bluebell woods nearby will be coming good too.
