This would normally be the season where we take the students to the beautiful Hallerbos, close to Brussels, to teach them all about forest types and keystone plant species. This trip would importantly also involve stunning purple fields of bluebells all the way to the horizons.
None of that this year, though.
So this year, I’ll have to do with those few scattered bluebells popping up in the woods and fields close to my home, and the pictures and memories from last year’s course. The students – even worse – will have to do with a theoretical course on forest types.
For those finding that notion of missed nature opportunities a tad sad, I’m happy to take you back on a trip down memory line with some pictures of this amazing forest.
