Villers-la-Ville (Wallonia) - Through forests and fields - part 2

by Björn Roose July. 06, 2019 435 views

One of the (tiny) forests in Flanders, the Hallerbos, is very well known for the bluebell carpet that covers the forest floor for a few weeks each spring. That "phenomenon" attracts tens of thousands of tourists over and over again.

And that is ... why I never visited it. If I'm taking photos of these flowers, I don't want people on them (not on the photo and not on the flowers). But - and I didn't know that - in a few of the forests in Wallonia, this "phenomenon" is growing too. We were lucky enough to walk right into one of those forests.

So here's the bluebell part of a serie which started here and was followed by a first part about the nature in this region.

I find it interesting that they are called Bluebells eventhough they can be white and in my eyes, the "blue" ones are not blue but rather lavender color. Either way you have a nice series going on here.

It's probably a man who gave them their name. And men are no good with colours smile

Beautiful! Love that shade of blue,  It is becoming more of a struggle to go to my favorite spot without lots of people 😐
