TAX LIBERATION DAY

Just to give you a clue of how much taxes we pay in Belgium ; as of today  the money we earn is for ourselves, the money we earned from January 1st till July 26 th is for taxes !!!!! and this year the tax liberation day is earlier than ever ! Our social system is good but we pay a very high price for it !

FLOWER EXHIBITION

Last week we went to a flower exhibition in a nearby village. It was rather windy so it was difficult to take some decent pictures but I managed to take a few.

MAD GRAPES

My grapes in the greenhouse are growing like mad, I never had so many grapes before. It is a young grapevine and it has been growing in my greenhouse for about 3 years now I think and it thrives and grows and grows, I can hardly keep up cutting the long branches who don’t carry fruit.

IT IS A VARIETY THAT LOOSES EXESS GRAPES BY THEMSELVES THAT’S WHY THE BUNCHES HAVE AN ABNORMAL SHAPE.

I HAVE TO USE ALL MY IMAGINATION TO KEEP THE BIRDS OUT OF THE GREENHOUSE, SO FAR THE BEST IS TIN FOIL AND LOTS OF IT.

I hope all is well with you all !

FLOWERS FLOWERS FLOWERS

It’s definitely flowertime in the garden alas the rain and the wind can ruin it in no time, the weather is very unstable, one moment it looks like Summer with a blue sky and sun, the next the sky is grey and we get lots of rain or worse ; a thunder storm. So we enjoy the moments we can and when the bbq falls into the water we move to the kitchen and bake our meat in a fryingpan :D….
