Secret Garden

Last week while wandering around town, I unexpectedly happened upon the Botanical Gardens here in Leuven. It's free to enter, and I plan on spending many afternoons here when the weather is nice. I'm glad I found it on a beautiful day - and though many of the flowers are no longer in bloom, it was still such a wonderful quiet escape.

I wandered through the garden, down narrow paths, through arches and over the little bridges around the pond.

The landscape is dotted with sculptures and fountains...

And plenty of benches to rest, read, draw, or just be alone with your thoughts...

And chickens...

And guardian angels perched above...

I had such a relaxing afternoon: strolling, sitting, thinking, enjoying. Next time I go, I'll be prepared with a sketchbook, a novel, a picnic, and Didz... because everything is better when I get to share it with Didz.

(all together now: "Awwwwww...")


  1. So beautiful, Auste! This blog is the cutest. Love all the pictures.

  2. You are too cute. I'm so happy you are loving your new (and totally awesome) life.
