Field of Science

dry, dry, dry, and more dry

 Any way you want to slice it our gardens are suffering through a drought.  Areas that would be called "lawn" are brown and crispy, and they would burn should anyone drop a match. Our lily/fish pond is down some 6-10 inches.  Some trees must be watered or else they would die.  A Kousa dogwood is struggling, but not much else is newly planted. So TPP is dragging hoses around to give the most sensitive plants water.  And you can hardly blame bun-buns for eating plants that are best at keeping themselves alive.  The bird bath and garden fountain are very popular with our avian residents.   The native Prickly pear did flower very nicely.
