The Waters...




These pictures were taken along the Cow Road this afternoon. You can see the flooding is still quite extensive. Look at the drowned row of daffodils in the second picture. This is a small plot of land that is used by Vietnamese farmers to make some money with flowers and veggies: all is lost...

As I got back into the car I saw this pheasant running along the road... Not a safe place to be Mr. Pheasant!

PS See how low the clouds are hanging in these pictures and it is still pou-ring also: I haven't taken a single 'Signs of Spring' picture this week yet! Just look at my sister's blog instead: I hear they're having a 'heat wave' in Holland this weekend...

    And...to answer your question...the tiered plate stand came from Home Goods. :)

  5. Some places on Earth are drying out and Cow Road and Thailand are flooded and we are lost in fog....The daffodils are like water lilies.
