Belgian Farms

I love happening upon unusually tantalizing and irresistible subjects for a blog post.

Belgian smallholdings are a case in point. After two drives through the Belgian countryside this past week, I’m impelled to introduce everyone to this understated scenic attraction.

In contrast to flat northern French paysage (vast unending tracts of farmland with scattered clusters of habitation) and English farmland (slightly less vast but still fairly big fields with isolated farm buildings), the Belgian countryside around Zeebrugge is a quaint patchwork of perfect little farmsteads and neat outbuildings evenly dotted across the fields within shouting distance of each other.

I was entranced by these toy farms and their pint-sized fields. Taking photos as we zoomed past was not easy, but here are just a few visual treats.

Vive la difference.
