The garden chronicles – all about rain

I live in Holland, actually in Haarlem to be exact, which basically mean that the summer is a hit or a miss… this year it started beautifully, blazing warm days, but unfortunately before we had time to get used to the actual sun  in July the rain came and it rained and rained and rained a bit more…

This is the only joy a I got from my garden back then; looking at it from the couch with the backdoor open, looking how the sky watered my plants for days and days.

Thank God, we have had some dry and sunny days lately, which I will post about later

  1. I’m in central Germany, I can relate…nothing but rain here for weeks! But oh, your garden is soo beautiful! I’d love to see more pictures!

  2. The rain in Spain has stayed mainly around me this summer – I know how you feel.

  3. Love the shots of the rain bouncing off the ground. Cool!

  4. I live in Texas. Today is the 20-something day with temperatures above 100F/38C. Yesterday, it was 109F/43C. It isn’t usually this hot but it has destroyed most of my garden. We have been in a drought, too…it is nice to see your rain!

  5. i envy you…. i live in spain.. and i wish for rainy days… dream about them… and to have some mist…. well i have to move for that

    1. ha ha, We could swap houses next summer, I would love to spend some time in Spain! 🙂

  6. Nice photos! This set of four works very well together – great stuff! FATman
