Snow on the Botanique

In belgium it's not automatically a white christmas, sometimes we have no snow at all, but this week we had already some good one. Thursday will I was working it started, we couldn't see the other buildings so strong it was. We had to go to another building for work, and it was a kind of an expedition. The snow is staying, and they weather predictions are telling us that we will have a white christmas maybe. I think that would be very nice. Today I went one of the two René Pechère parks close to my office. So know i can show you some picture of Pechère art under the snow.
It's called the park of the "Botanique". In the past the city stopped there, it were the botanical gardens of the city, were all the rare and exotic plant were kept. In the seventies there was a plan to put a building there, but the citizens protested so much that the project never started. Thank God, because I can swear this is the most wonderful place in the summer, or even all year around.

Hope you enjoy it as much as i did today.

Thats the building i work in :-)

Good weekend, and happy holidays!!!!
