We have real dutch weather, last weeks a lot of sun, sometimes rain and beautiful Dutch skies, clouds! :laugh:

Beautiful, Fleur, it reminds me of parts of Montana, where I was raised-- "Big Sky Country."

And, Alice, I saw on the weather report yesterday or today that all along the west coast of the USA it is much cooler & wetter than usual this year.

Yes it has been in the 65f / 15C kind of range and rainy or grey in Oregon (it was nicer today). No Dutch skies for us.

In the west the sunset on 15.6.2011 NL time 21.39 pm, day of the total eclipse of the moon.
The sky in the south east where the moon would rise was cloudy but from the south the wind
drove away the clouds..but, a shame, very slowly.

Image

Behind these rather low hanging clouds the moon was hidden.
Image

To show you how beautiful it could have been to see "the red moon". I found this picture (Yvan Van Geluwe) on Internet.

Image

On NL time 23.11 pm the moon came out of the shadow of the earth again

Image

23.53

Second part ....

Spring passed and summer came with beautiful days, sometimes with showers and sometimes almost too hot.
On June 22 in the Achterhoek, a part of the province Gelderland in the Netherlands these pictures have been made.

Image
20.10
After a shower a common redstart (Phoenicurus phoenicurus) is furtively looking around to catch flying insects

Image
21.23
The sky is getting a strange yellowish colour

Image
21.26
some tiny clouds appear

Image
21.27
sun is lower and it is getting a bit darker

Image
21.27
all happens so fast: first raindrops against the windowpanes

Image
21.27
in the same minute it really is pouring on the garden

That is absolutely true Jo, but sometimes we forget to
enjoy it, even though our eyes are seeing it...

Image


But on July 7 at 21.05 pm in Donna's garden under the apple trees when I saw this beautiful roe doe I really enjoyed it very much and felt exceptionally grateful for this encounter!
