Maybe you didn't believe me when I wrote it, but I was really ready to mail a 'ballotin' of 370 gr. of Belgian chocolates to whoever found the answer to - I admit - a very difficult quiz question in Wednesday's post ... Except for Mats and Vera, of course (sorry, dear friends), because we were there together in June.
As nobody came up with the right answer, I will have to eat the chocolates myself. But I'm sure my mother won't mind helping me, because she's a real chocoholic!
Maybe I should have added the above photo as a tip to Wednesday's post. I'm sure it would have helped you to find the spot we were looking for.
The photo was taken at the 2012 edition of the International Garden Festival at the 'Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire'. If my memory serves me right the clever design made of jam lids was part of garden number 5: "Le jardin psyché-délice". (Please correct me if I'm wrong).
We visited the festival on Thursday afternoon during our June trip. I'll be returning to my chronological report, taking us back to Tuesday's lunch and Wednesday's big social event soon. But I thought the quiz was a nice intermezzo while I was resting my weary eyes and fingers for a while after a hectic week at the office.
Regular service will resume presently ...
P.S. Today, July 21st, is Belgium's 'Fête Nationale'. If it had been a week day, we would have had the day off. The only difference with a normal Saturday is that all the shops are closed and that there is a military parade and a big party in the Warande Park in Brussels this afternoon. Tonight there are fireworks over the 'Monts des Arts' (The art hill) in Brussels.
