Eeklo (Flanders) - Huysmanshoeve - part 1

by Björn Roose February. 21, 2019 610 views

The Huysmanshoeve (Huysmans farm) in Eeklo (Flanders) nowadays is property of the regional government, but dates back to the 13th century. It has known a pretty interesting history, but from 1736 until somewhere in the 20th century it remained in the hands of the family Huysman, hence its name.

Certainly worth a visit, especially on a sunny day.

I think the isolation is not exactly splendid, but then again: Flemish winters ain't that cold smile

#5 - Bachelor's buttons - maybe poetic, but it reminds me of Nazis wearing this flowers as a distinctive mark. Today members of our far right government wear cornflowers too.   *SIGH*
Nevertheless a beautiful picture!
#1 - very inviting ...

Well, if I were to throw overboard every symbol that was once used by a dictatorship or a political movement I don't like, I would have to throw away my hammers and my sickle too and cut my red roses to the ground ...
