Canal Reflections in the Netherlands - May 2011
Utrecht ~ Netherlands

The canals are full, the flowers & trees are blooming (or have bloomed), the birds and water foul are happy, everything's very pretty - but we really need some rain in Holland! It's been many weeks now without much rain, only a tiny sprinkle here or there (however, no rain in my garden :o( ...).

Keeping my fingers crossed that we see some rain this weekend ... and I thought I'd never be wishing for rain! lol

tot ziens,
Judy

Beautiful photo! Is that in your neighborhood? Well I just checked the forecast and there's a chance of rain next weekend, just in time for my arrival over there!

No, not in my exact neighborhood - but yes, somewhere in Utrecht.

I don't think you'll see much rain, to be honest. Cloudy maybe,mayhbe a shower or two, but the rain chances on the Dutch weather stations don't show much at all for when you'll be here. They predict cooler temps arouind that time too - be a little colder than your used to ... around 68 - 70F for the highs, which could feel colder in the shade or on a cloudy day. Lows around 46-48F. :)

But we'll see, it could all change!!

Gorgeous photo. It has been a beautiful spring here too. And as I write it is pouring with rain so perhaps it is in Holland too.

Thanks J.
Nope, no rain here ... yet.
Had to get the garden spinkler out yesterday... fortunately my garden is the size of a tablecloth. LOL
