FOREST AFTER HEAVY RAINFALL

Wat een regen de laatste dagen. Zware buien. Maar vandaag werd het droog rond twaalven en ik heb in de schuur mijn regenlaarzen opgezocht. Gauw naar het bos! Wat rook het er lekker!

Clouds and heavy rain continue to dominate yesterday and today.  But around 12 o'clock the sun broke through the clouds. I grabbed my rain boots and went into the forest.  I love the smell of the forest after the rain. 🌲🌳🌲




Ik had precies anderhalf uur om rond te wandelen in het bos. Hoe mooi was het. Ik hoorde de druppels van de bladeren op de zachte bosbodem vallen: drup, drup, drup. Ik zag prachtige paddenstoelen, verschillende soorten mos en dan die varens! Ik maakte er foto's van want ze waren ongelofelijk mooi.

I had exactly one and a half hours to walk around there. I liked it so much: the drops on the leaves, the smell of the forest floor,  the beautiful ferns in the sunlight.  I took three photos. Can you see the spores?




 I celebrate the wonder and beauty of nature. God’s design is everywhere, even in the tiniest insects. I saw a lot of hoverflies, but I was unable to photograph them. They were so fast. And the sun's rays sparkled on their characteristic little wings.

Ik was onder de indruk van al het moois van de natuur. Het was echt een feestje. Als christen zie ik zoveel van God in de natuur dat ik helemaal verwonderd ben. Die details! En toen was mijn tijd om en moest ik me toch nog haasten om op tijd te zijn voor mijn afspraak.




Have a beautiful weekend!
