The hillsides are still full of myrtilles sauvages, wild bilberries. Knowing that this glut isn't going to last, we could have picked bucketfulls of these gorgeous little fruits to turn into jams or tartes in the kitchen back at home. But we preferred to follow the lead from the flocks of sheep: sit down and gorge ourselves on the hillside, straight from the bush. 


  1. They look so yummy! I'm fond of bilberries (or forest berries as we cal them in Dutch). Too bad it's hard to find them in the wild in Belgium...

    1. Oh they were! It was impossible to tear me away!
      Do you like to go foraging? Is there anything else you can find in the wilds of Belgium?
