Vanderhulst Garden’s springtime in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw

We spent our Easter Day with friends in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, in Belgium. We visited the garden of an old friend, a passionate horticulturist, Charly Vanderhulst, who dedicated his life to gardening.

Sint-Pieters-Leeuw is a small town bordering the valley of the Senne and the Pajottenland, just some kilometres away from Brussels.

We described Charly’s beautiful garden while we visited it in 2016. We had the chance to visit it in July and we admired his plants while he introduced each of them to us. He knew so many things by heart after a life-experience of gardening.

In April the garden looks different. It is like a piece of heaven, as its neighbourhoods still show timid nature signs to come back to life. The garden’s colours are more vivid, bright and powerful. Our eyes did not get tired of absorbing them, at once and one by one.

It was great listening to Charly’s comments which clearly showed how much he loves gardening. He thinks that his plants are sensible souls.

The visit as such turned into an useful horticulture lesson, from which we learned a lot. In particular Charly highlighted why one should do what s/he likes in life like he did, without regretting that he gave up his previous mechanic job.
