Texas is experiencing the worst drought on record. We are in a 30 inch precipitation deficit and the expected land-fall of tropical storm/hurricane Don is not going to bring us the much needed rain we had hoped.
The dead leaves on the Redbud tree that should be green at this time of year is testimony to the drought and heat, despite lots of watering. The grass in the background is green at great expense of water, now known as liquid gold in Texas.
An evergreen hedge has curled up and died. Can it make a come-back? Who knows?
Lots of spots of entirely dead grass, with not even one green blade peeking through.
More dead plants, unable to withstand the horrible heat and lack of water.
Always learning, growing, seeking. Lover of all things creative. I'm a pretty funny person. May have missed my calling as a stand-up comedienne. LOL! I can make just about anyone laugh. I love to sing, too. I sing for anyone who will listen. My favorite song to sing in public is "The Water is Wide," a 16th century English ballad. It has a sweet tune and is short enough to hold people's attention. As an appreciation, most people clap when I finish the song which is always a delightful surprise.
