During the weekend a "Garden Show" was organized in a street of Rhode St. Genèse, part of Brussels. Everybody could participate and show his garden. The most beautiful one got a price.

My friend Myriam's sister in law participated too and I have to say I have never seen such a beautiful private garden in my whole life.

It was not a traditional garden with flowers shrubs and hedges and a lawn in the middle, but a very messy garden where flowers, shrubs and trees grew in apparently disorder. But for those who know about plants it wasn't in such a disorder, only it looked like and this wilderness made it so charming and beautiful.

This was front of the house

and the entrance.

Coffee, juices or water was served to the visitors and also some cake, which was very much appreciated by the two dogs of the house.

Here is a selection of flowers

interrupted by some decoration

The way through the whole garden was made of old wooden railway ties.

a charming pont

and garden sheds

some chairs to sit down

Myriam and I sat on a bench

We spent at least 2 hours in this garden it was so unusually beautiful in its wilderness.

I don't know anything about flowers or plants, but I appreciate their beauty very much. After a cup of coffee and a piece of cake we left and returned home.

It really is a wonderful garden and you captured it well.

How beautiful and lovely. When I see a garden that is too well tended, I think they must hire help and not do the work themselves. What a lovely day and the flowers are simply amazing! Best of all. It looks natural!

Oh wow, amazing! I can't believe it's a private garden! I imagine it takes lot of work to maintain such a beautiful garden but your friend's sister-in-law must really enjoy that :-)

It is truly beautiful. I love 'wild' gardens. I wish mine would look like that but here everything flowers or grows at a different time.

That's a lovely garden but it must have taken years to get to that stage and an awful lot of work.
