AND FINALLY, RAIN

En eindelijk een goede regenbui! Dat was nodig. Het hagelde ook èn de zon scheen. Het was heel apart om te zien. Plus de regenboog. Er was ook een regenboog.

And finally rain! We need water here in The Netherlands. It hailed too (large hailstones) and the sun was shining. It was a little weird to see.

  1. En hebben je zonnebloemen er niet al teveel onder geleden?
    Bij ons is er niet eens zo heel veel gevallen, ook geen hagel.
    Ja, het is echt droog overal. En als je dan aan de komende week denkt...

  11. Wow! The hail is quite big. We had a bit of rain last week which was almost like hail. We are back to sun for a few days but I can't wait for rain again next Wednesday. In summer I like regular rain because it helps the greenery and flowers. In Winter, not so much, lol. I do love your sunflowers too.

  12. I always think of the Netherlands as being in a constant battle with water, so it almost seems odd that you needed rain!

    1. We are fighting against the water for such a long time, but now all is different. Now our country is investing seven million euros to deal with extremely dry seasons. read it here: https://smartwatermagazine.com/news/smart-water-magazine/netherlands-usually-wet-now-invest-dealing-drought
