After all these mountains from my previous posts, it is again time for some good ol’ nature from back home!
This is a series celebrating the little pieces of nature in between the agriculture, with pictures from the polder landscape close to Breda in the Netherlands.
No mountains here, only flat meadows and straight horizons. A nice alternative view to the endless spiky horizons in Sweden and Norway.
Summer is hot here in Western Europe, and I do not mind at all. Neither do the butterflies, as there were virtually thousands of them on all flowers.
For my drought experiment at the university campus, this nice weather is also a good thing. No worries about keeping the plants dry or about rising soil water levels. A much quicker and more thorough stress experiment then I could have anticipated.
More about the cool plants in my experiment there will follow soon!
