Against the pond the Warande which you see further at this Gilze page you find this garden.

There are not that many parks where you find this kind of difference. the best time to see the many plants in blom is from June till September.

Abdis van Thornstraat
The trees in this street are so beautiful when they are in bloom, I sometimes make a detour just to enjoy it.
Everytime when I ride through this street I think that I have to make a picture of it, well I did eventually enjoy the view.
During my daily walks with my dog, one morning I discovered this beautiful white landscape, I rush home to get my camera.
Some children even try the ice
This house once belongs to mrs. Mol, later it was the mayors house.
again a picture from the park
This is a picture from our park.
They call the park "Mollenbos" (mole woods) that is because the park ones belong to a mrs Mole who lived in the big house just outside the park.
Ones a year a big party is kept in the park. Saturday evening their is a big concert.
Sunday morning an other concert from the local brass band, in the afternoon a lot of different activities like pantomime, puppet show, magic show etc.
