A hidden gem
Nearby Nijmegen, in the nature reserve 'de Millingerwaard', lies a hidden gem. It is called the 'Millinger theetuin'. You can only reach it on foot or bicycle, by following a two kilometer long track. On the way you meet Galloway cows and Konik horses.
I have seen lots of gardens, but this one touched not only my heart, but that of my family as well. Even my little nephew, who is nine years old, enjoyed the atmoshpere of the place. We had to fight who could use my camera :-)!
It is like walking in Andalusia or Morocco; the plants, the garden house, the tiles, the flowers, the birdsong.... There is so much to see! The owners have spent much love in creating this piece of heaven, and it shows! We spent a lovely two hours in the garden, drinking tea, eating pie, just relaxing and looking at all the beauty around us... I came home filled with ideas and new energy! If you want to see more pictures of the garden or visit. Please have a look at their website.
