    This is the view I have had from out of my kitchen window in all of the past 4 weeks ... apart from only a couple of hour-long exceptions to this rule:

    And this is the way in which our verandah furniture is presenting itself in this summer:

    But the plants in our garden love it. They grow like mad.

    Worst was the weather upon our return from the swamp (cf. http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27554), where I also saw the "Dramatic Skies" (cf. http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27469 or http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?p=261206 for the colour versions) last Sunday:

    Garden view from my study with overflowing (albeit cleaned!) gutters.

    But...
    sometimes this funny (har-har) weather situation also stands for some nice motifs, as seen from out of the car on our way home from the zoo in Emmen/Netherlands near Bremen:

    Mind you: today is a sunny day - for a change!
    I urgently apply to all our UK members that you try your very best to provide for weather UNLIKE the kind shown here for next (20/21th) weekend, which is our meet-up weekend in Saffron Walden! ;)

    I realy like the 4th picture, the one of the leaf with water droplet. It reminds me of when i go out into my garden (with the same weather as you currently). Where do you live to have that bad weather in the summer?

    In North Germany, Daniel. And while the south may well enjoy a decent and summer-like summer, we must not, for whichever reason.
    But all is forgiven if the weekend 20/21 August is nice in and around Saffron Walden in Essex. I don't ask for any more. That is where we are going to have our first European TPF Meet-up.

    Nice series! I especially like the spider web with the droplets of water all over it. Great capture!

    Thanks all, so far.
    It's a pity that because of all the leaves and such (very much information) Photobucket shrunk the first photo to an even smaller size than the reduction I gave to it (640x480 - roughly) ... but they only allow for 250k, and if there are many leaves, there is just too much information there. Therefore it is not to be seen that the tips of those dark red leaves are all covered in little water droplets. It looks nice when it shows on the full screen ... here the effect is nil :(.

    I like the rainbow, considering that my husband was rushing past at 120 km/h at the time ;).

    Ooh, that last one is great! You know what, we should get together and combine our weather. It's hot here, and cool (?) there, really dry here, and wet there. We could have the perfect climate!!! (But you can keep the snow over there :lmao: )
