When In Drought

At first we were just watering the plants that needed a drink the most, but now it would seem we waited too long for some.

This is by far the longest I have seen the plants go without rainfall. It's almost too much to try to keep up with.

 The ferns in complete shade are the only ones left hanging on. A lot of the weeds are even suffering, although not enough if you ask me. Really I am just trying to get out of pulling them.

 These trees may have officially bit the dust. There is just the slightest hint of green on the very inside and I have been watering everyday, so we'll just have to wait and see. It's not a huge loss since I scored these and then some for $15. They are, however, right in the middle of the fence line.

The good news is the guys on NPR were stating that the weather would make up for our lack of H2O this Summer with an abundance of rain and most likely flooding this Fall. Better pull out your galoshes.
