Springhill Stories

Gardening each day, keeps the doctor away


Stefan*Springhill Stories

Hello, my name is Stefan. I always loved city life, but then you come at an age where the call of nature and a real garden grows stronger and stronger. I am at that age now and so we bought a piece of land on a hill in a tiny village in Wallonia. On that land we will build our house, but even more importantly, start our organic garden. As I was writing bobobrussels (a blog about lovely Brussels, travel, food and city life ) in the past, I thought it would be a nice idea to switch to a blog about the green life. Follow my garden adventures, get ideas to visit parks and gardens, get directions for nature walks.
