OH GREEN - GARDEN/YARD CENTER

Since now two weeks we are blessed with a cocktail of storm, wind, rain, hail, snow, and of course an always grey sky. Everybody is really fed up. To cheer us up I remembered a Garden Center in a little town in the French speaking part of Belgium. Last time we had visited another one but in the Flemish part. I had been there a few years ago when it had just opened. This was the only place where you could see colorful flowers and plants.

I had forgotten that it is very huge ! It was impossible to see it all. But we saw what we wanted.



It's huge indeed !



At the entrance we we're greeted by  an Easter Bunny and his wife



There was a little bar with drinks, coffee and Belgian waffles, where we had a well earned coffee and a waffle after our tour !

We began our tour with these artificial flowers !





They look so real

Then we went outside in the greenhouse ! The hail made an awful noise it was as if a drummer sat on the roof.



We were safely in the dry





and looked at little figurines for the garden







and all kind of decoration for inside and outside



This chair was very comfortable !



Not really my taste



the greenhouse was very big too



and to my surprise, there were little rabbits for sale !



Looking down to the first floor

The time went by so quickly and we had to return home. Driving was not that easy with hail and rain !



but fields and country side looked beautiful even in this moody weather.



I saw with pleasure that the trees start to bloom !

Garden centres sell so much more than just plants these days. Good to see the blossom on the trees. Spring is definitely here.

I had to smile seeing you sitting in that chair. Suddenly you looked like a cute little fairy with wings. :)

The big bunnies are quite a sight to see!

That is a really huge place. I've never seen a garden center with upper floor around here!
