BEAUTIFUL KENYA finale

Today you’ll get the last pictures of our trip to Kenya, maybe you’ll want to go and see for yourselves how it looks as the real thing is always better than pictures of course, and as I said before, the smell you get with the views make it even more special. Kenya is highly dependant on eco tourists so you’ll be welcomed with open arms !

ANOTHER LOST DAY FOR THE GARDEN

It’s been raining for over 36 hours now so there is not much to tell about the garden, instead I am going to tell you about the flora and fauna of Kenya where we were on holliday a few years ago.

Kenya is paradise for those who love the birds and the bee’s , the flowers and the tree’s and last but not least ofcourse the big mamals. On vacation we are allways on the lookout for plants and animals whether it is in Belgium or abroad, my husband is a very keen birdlover where as I love everything about nature. The hotels we stayed in were awesome, they all had beautfull gardens and the rooms were cottages in the garden, the food was excellent !

JUST CLICK ON THE PICTURES AND YOU’LL GET A BETTER VIEW.

A VIEW OVER THE SAVANNA WITH ON THE LEFT A HUGE EUPHORBIA TREE

GNOE’S OR WILDEBEASTS EVERYWHERE YOU SEE

MY FAVORITE ANIMAL : THE MONKEY !!!! I COUD WATCH THEM ALL DAY !!!

THESE ARE THE FRUITS OF THE SAUSAGE TREE, APPARENTLY THEY MAKE BEER OF THE FRUITS

BEAUTIFULL BIRDS EVERYWHERE

AN EXOTIC WATERLILLY

I LIKED THIS TREE, LOOK AT THE BRANCHES !!!

This is just a small selection of the thousends of pictures we took. If ever you decide to visit Kenya you can make the children there very happy with something they can write with and with a t-shirt and shorts as people there are very poor and many children don’t have a pen or even a book to write their notes in.

This will be it for today, as of tomorrow we’ll get better weather but tomorrow I have to work.

ENJOY YOUR DAY AND YOUR GARDEN !! and thanks for stopping by !
