Belgium, Knokke, June 7 2008

knotted willows (Salix viminalis Common Osier ) and pink flowers along a driveway
I had seen this driveway when we passed there on our way to the butterfly garden. And when we passed there again on our way back –
even though it was raining and we were all tired of making pics – I couldn’t stop myself from begging the driver for another stop. While my companions stayed in the car, I spent another 10 minutes or so photographing this marvellous scenery… :)
