Summer is not over but my vacations are, and today I’m back to Sally’s challenge.
Europe has seen the extreme force of Mother Nature at work.
The Netherlands was not spared. From heat waves in July to intermittent rain and heavy storms, we have enjoyed a show of nature’s power.
Trees have fallen everywhere in the country and even some very old and heavy ones didn’t resist the strength of the wind.
This morning I had an appointment in the neighborhood of one of the public parks in Amsterdam. I was fortunate to spot workers removing trees that had perished, and stopped to make some photos for this challenge.
Today has been another unusual day with temperatures over 30 C degrees. As it was early in the morning, there were just a few people sun tanning in the park. I had to head to my meeting, but I am sure the park became jam-packed, as everyone wants to enjoy the sun in days like that.
Hope you enjoy the pictures.
A warm welcome to Sally, who is also back from vacations!
