The water table in the Meersen has drastically lowered since April

I do not know what this white stuff is, but I do know that this used to be ditch full of water

A battered old tree but still alive

The fence is to keep the cattle within their allotted area

Inundated meadows

Muddy path !

Inundated meadows

Muddy path !

Nice looking plant – is it ‘native’ or a garden plant blown in by the wind ?

‘Bos hyacinth’

I am following a route over some artificial hills
What this triangle is for I don’t know

Let op uw tulband, hijab of pet !
Mind your turban, hijab or cap !

E17 Rijssel – Kortrijk – Gent – Antwerpen

Mind your headgear ….

A wonderful messy tree !

This will be another ‘dreef’ after the trees have done some serious growing up

The houses are part of Koningsdonk

Inundated meadows along the Schelde

One of the concreted paths that I like to avoid

Many of the trees planted last year did not survive due to the drought

‘Geboortebos’ names and date of births of kids born in Gent

Amongst the young trees !

Fully grown trees are really nicer !

Path parallel to the E17, not too noisy because of trees

Going towards Koningsdonk

Rietgracht

Flowers and dense vegetation

These stones are not part of the natural landscape in these parts

My pag (turban/tulband) was almost taken off my head by these evil branches !

Path running paralel to E17

Walking towards Koningsdonk

Near the busy E17 motorway, but not too noisy because of the trees

Fresh green leaves in June, how long will these stay like this in the present drought.

Major junction of footpaths !
