Not one to bring sadness to the Brussels DP but this photo had to be shown. More because of the story behind it than anything else.
For weeks I lived the passionate story of the Uccle chestnut trees. Seems a rather harsh tree plague attacked (some of) the chestnuts on Ave. Winston Churchill, so they had to be cut down.
The number of chestnuts on the 'black list' goes up to 310 which of course enraged the 'chestnut protectors'. In the end however some of the chestnuts went so we had crosses and flowers all along the avenue. Sad and somehow surreal at the same time.
