First built in the XIIth century, it is surrounded by a broad moat, its deep waters reflecting the centuries-old beech trees. A five-arch bridge, crosses over to the drawbridge leading to the fortified entrance dating back to the XIVth century. The castle itself, built in the XVIIth century, is a wonderful example of the Flemish Renaissance.
There are over one million bulbs of tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and others, planted on over 35 acres. Oh My!
So a little warning. I took over 200 pictures and no, I won't post them all. Just some of my very favorites. Enjoy!
This was my absolute favorite tulip!
I don't have the names of all the different varities, so just enjoy the show!
The picture below is Stijn standing at the top of the heart that you see in the picture above.
There were also azalea's throughout the gardens
And these hyacinths smelled soooo sweet!
I know, I know, how pictures can one take of flowers?
I just love this daffodil!
Thank you for taking the time to "Stop and enjoy the beauty of Spring"
