Tuesday at Two (4th June)

It has finally stopped raining!

I shouldn’t complain, since we are luckily on a hillside with no risk of flooding, although our garden actually had puddles and standing water in it! Many people down at water level are flooded out, and downstream the Danube at Regensburg and Passau (near the border to Austria) is at its highest level ever.

Today’s view…


Have a good week everyone, and hope you are getting some lovely sunshine!

  1. Glad to hear that you are safe and sound Cathy. The flooding in Central Europe has been in the news here – so sad. I hope that the worst is over. We are enjoying a settled spell for once – you could even say that it was warm today ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. We were watching the Danube on the news last night, so glad that you are high and dry and that your weather is improving. So sad that nature can wreak such havoc, hope the floods soon disappear.

  3. Thought of you when I heard the news reports from Germany – good to hear you’re not flooded. The rain stopped and the sun came out just in time for the Tuesday view!

  4. Gorgeous view Cathy. The flooding there sounds just terrible. We had a nice rain Sunday night and Monday. It was needed after about a ten-day dry spell where the garden and grass started looking very stressed. Take care.

    • Hi Susie. Gentle rain in small doses would be ideal. We all seem to get prolonged dry spells and then storms and floods these days!

  5. Iยดm so happy that it has finally stopped raining. Our garden is still dripping wet…the flowers were suffering. But mostly suffering by the rain, cold and wind were the sheep in the meadows close by us. The newborn lambs were in danger to get an inflammation of the lungs…the shepherds have been very sorrowful…

  6. Looks great! Glad your rains have subsided ours begin on Thursday or Friday and flooding my occur for Sat. Must not mow till next Monday so it can get even thicker here ๐Ÿ™‚

    • We’ve seen terrible reports of dams breaking in Bavaria today. And the rain in the Czech Republic is still causing German rivers to flood, so we’re not through yet! Dry here though thank goodness.

      • Stay safe Cathy We here in the states feel your pain as we have all seen the S%#* hit the FAN! ๐Ÿ™‚ we will have flooding rains Friday and Sat. here but so far no beavers have been in the yard for awhile now.

    • Watching the news tonight was just terrible – so many large towns and cities completely flooded out even into the first floors. We’re lucky here.

  7. The view today is gorgeous! I hope it is holding. ๐Ÿ™‚ How awful to hear about the flooding. I feel so badly when I hear about these natural disasters–flooding would be both frightening, and physically overwhelming. Your garden is just gorgeous, though, and I’m glad we can see how green it is! Our hills are slowly turning yellow and will soon be brown for several months! I do like green. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yes, my garden is exceptionally green at the moment! Everyone was low when it was raining so heavily for days on end, so I can’t even imagine how the poor flood victims are feeling now. Thanks for your comment Debra. With all this unusual weather we are having, you may get rain and it will be a little greener a little longer!

  8. Looks gorgeous Cathy! Best yet! I’m so jealous of your rain but I understand it has been too much. Flooding is definitely destructive. I saw a friend’s pictures of Munich too and the river(s) looked very high. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • The Danube and the Elbe further east are the major problems at the moment – dramatic pictures are reaching us. Three months’ worth of rain within a few days was just too much!

    • Thanks Dohn. The rains DID subside, but floods are still threatening the east and north of the country, as a large river (the Elbe) flows from the Czech republic through several very big German cities. And Eastern Europe had more rain than even here…
