So do we have rain? No, I am still watering.
As is most of the country, Kansas is having a bad drought.*** My mom is beginning to talk about the drought of the 1930's in comparison. Eek! We have no water restrictions......yet.
I have given up trying to keep the lawn going, letting it go dormant, however I am keeping the plants alive as best I can. The garden hose has become my nemesis.
Don't forget to keep the bird baths filled. I put pans of water on the ground to keep the squirrels and opossums from climbing the bird bath and toppling it!
Except for this bird bath, which leaks, so I planted it.
View from the screened porch. See how dried up the lawn has become? Boo Hoo.
I notice the birds are visiting the feeders much more too. I guess many plants dried up before they were able to produce seeds.
*** An added note: Today Kansas is the hottest place in the country. Nice.....
