Breathtaking purple-blue carpets of Halle’s Wood

Halle’s Wood (Hallerbos in Dutch and Bois de Hal in French) is a well-known wood famous for its bluebell carpets that are on display from late April to early May. The wood is the place where the sky falls down in spring and where the purple fog effect overwhelms the ground.

It is said that the wood as such surpasses the world-famous gardens at Keukenhof (near Amsterdam) as it is not a man-made garden.

The wood green carpets get an extra purple-blue layer, made of millions of bells, which spread everywhere and make the landscape purely marvellous. The spectacular flowerbeds are of a unique natural beauty. A bluebell flower is between 14 and 20 mm long, with two bracts at the base and six violet–blue tepals.

The wood is located right on the border of Flanders and Wallonia, in Belgium. It is worth paying a visit.
