Hi you all!
I think Germany has been moved to the tropics without us noticing. The weather is really hot and humid, and we keep getting really violent rain and hail storms - not so pleasant. We have had as much rain in a few days as we usually get in 2 months! I managed a dry walk this morning, through the fields and and along the Rhine, but this afternoon I just stayed home and watched the rain coming down!
I made this cardboard piece some weeks ago for a challenge, and it got 'lost' under the heaps on my table .... last week when I cleared up I found it again.
I used corrugated cardboard, partly peeled, painted white, and then used a napkin for the summer flowers, as it reminded me very much of the meadows here.
This beautiful card arrived in my post box today, from Ulrike.
She saw an old letter on my blog last week, and asked if she could have a copy to make a brush. I mailed it to her, and she made this wonderful card, with flowers, butterfly, and the white script. Thanks Ulrike, it is a treasure!
The meadows are flourishing with the warm and wet weather.
This is the field where I watched the farmer bailing the hay at the weekend - he evidently finished the job really neatly!
These 2 are rather grainy as I had to zoom a lot - can you see that long necked bird on the field? It looks like a heron.
And these ducks and the swan were enjoying their morning swim!
Have a great day whatever you are up to, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
