Very nice set, indeed. Looks like you have yet to get some snow.

Nice. They look like spun silk.

These are lovely. What are they?

And another question, where are you in East Belgium? Anywhere near Wellen? I spent a very important year there when I was younger, and remember it fondly.

I live near Verviers, and the photos were taken in La Gileppe, one of my favorite walking place.

These are often seen (fleetingly) in early winter in Missouri.
