In our yard, the only greenery that ever seems to grow very well are weeds. If we want a fountain, we need to turn on the hose. For us to appreciate a garden it’s best to go visit one. The Gardens of Annevoie Castle, have been around for 250 years and they are spectacular. First opened to the public in the 1930s, the water feeding the fountains only flows with the help of gravity – no mechanical pumps. It’s a great stop if you’re touring southern Belgium where you can briefly leave the rest of the world behind before you head off in a search for that next amazing tripel.
