The rains and cool weather certainly seem to be having a positive impact on the “desert” areas in northern Qatar.

Friend of Doha News Nasser Al-Saadi sent us these photos on the weekend showing flourishing greenery.

Some Qatar residents lost no time taking advantage of it as a picnic spot, although Al-Saadi also urged visitors to make sure to clean up after themselves.

Hamad Al-Thani also shared his view of Qatar’s north with us:

Have you spotted some new greenery this winter? Thoughts?
