Floria Brussels, Château de Grand Bigard: PART 8

Floria Brussels, Château de Grand Bigard: PART 8

This is the bridge and Gatehouse to the Chateau. The moat has white swans, geese and ducks.

In the top right hand corner you can make out part of a building. That is part of the Greenhouses and Cafeteria which unfortunately I did not visit.

This was taken on the bank across from the Charteau. You cannot see the moat because I crouched down to get a better shot of the tulips and the Keep and Stately House in the background.
One of the things about all those tulips was that even the unopened buds managed to look stunning.

As I mentioned in previous posts they deliberately organised the planting of the bulbs in a manner that ensured that the bulbs would flower at different times. This ensured that not only would the flower show last longer but also provided an ever shifting floral vista.
I truely regret not getting a multi day pass and making several visits. Not only because there was much that I did not see but because I was not able to take pictures of this change in clolours and flowers.
