Fall Will Be Canceled Due to Drought

Is there lawn under there?

A friend in the middle of the country remarked this week that it must be pretty lovely by now where I live.

Normally it should and would be. But we are having such a severe drought that leaves are shriveling on the trees in many cases.

This is not how maple leaves should look. They should be a glorious mix of red, orange and yellow.

This dogwood should be a lovely russet red, not sickly yellow.

And this was a blue spruce. It survived our last drought. It’s going to have to be taken out shortly. Evergreens have a tougher time with drought because they can’t drop leaves to conserve moisture.

Container blueberries

These are about the only things with any color on our property. They look good because they got some regular watering over the summer.

As much as I hate the idea of a snowy winter, we desperately need moisture. I will endure it for the good of the garden!

    That sounds like something for Candid Camera; such as ‘Oklahoma is closed for renovation’.

      Oh, that was actually Texas was closed because there were too many people in it.
