What Betsy Saw (Subtitle: Spring comes to Belgium)

This is Betsy.

Betsy on ottoman best

Betsy is a senior dog, probably twelve or thirteen at least; she is likely a Chihuahua-Pekingese mix, known as a Pikachu. She likes a lot of things: cookies, treats, soft food, eating off a fork or spoon, sleeping, sitting in the sun, my cats, barking at cyclists and at other dogs, and sitting on my lap. But what she likes most are walks. Short walks, long walks, walks in the cold, walks in the heat. Betsy loves walks. And her favorite walks are ones like our walk today: 65 degrees Fahrenheit, sun shining, little or no traffic on our country road. And this is what Betsy saw today on her walk.

Horses!

These little "daisy-like" flowers are everywhere.

Look closely and you can see the local chateau behind the trees.

Blue sky: a rarity in Belgium

Yep, those are flower buds!

Springtime is finally coming to Belgium. Betsy is happy about that. So am I.

    I love this meandering, close-up look at your corner of the world in bloom. Betsy is so sweet…to have a day like today to actually see and smell and enjoy!
