Can’t stay away from the park Veluwezoom. The nature in the park is just amazing and perfect to photograph. This time I went there right after the rain. The forest was full of mushrooms and since it is autumn it also smelled so delicious of fallen leaves and pine trees. The mushrooms here are mostly non edible, but they sure do look good enough to photograph.
Do you like to go mushroom hunting?
There is this rose garden that is so beautiful that I want to dedicate more than one blog post to it. Last summer when I was there the flowers were in full bloom, that is why I have a lot of photographs I want to show you.
The rose garden, the Rosarium, belongs to Castle Arcen, which is in the south of the Netherlands in the province of Limburg. Even though Netherlands is well known for the tulips, the northern part of Limburg is famous for the roses. Especially the rose village Lottum, which has its own rose festival, farms, routes, etc. There is also a tea house that serves a rose themed high tea where everything is prepared with roses, like cake, jam, tea, coffee, wine and other things. Yum!
Sunlight glittering through the heath; the wind softly moving the tree leaves and the most gorgeous sunset. On top of the hill in Veluwezoom, where the monument Posbank is, nature creates the most magical moments during the summer evenings. The day I went there it was so beautiful and quiet. The weather was perfect. Sometimes I even dream of this place.
The park itself is really special as well. If you are lucky you can find and pick some wild blueberries and blackberries since no one really touches them, and often you can spot wild animals there. Also, since Posbank is on top of the hill you can see very far from here. This is quite unusual because the rest of the country is mostly flat.
Good to know is that Veluwezoom is a national park in Gelderland, the Netherlands. It’s also near Bronkhorst and the river IJssel.
