Why didn't "Rain" explain that this was going to happen .. that it needed a change of scenery, to let down its ... well ... rain ? and relax else where rather than here where we are missing it tremendously.
"Rain" should be aware that it is teaching us a lesson ... and if not "Rain's" doing.
Climate change or perhaps we can be more personal and say "Mother Nature" ?
Is she telling us "you better wake up people because things are changing and you have to go with the flow or lack there of"
Does this mean more drought tolerant native plants for gardeners ?
To stop fussing with "fussy" plants because they just don't cut it any more ..
Are we being TOLD in no uncertain terms it is time to CHANGE and sooner rather than later.
All these points are running through my head .. even though I have been so fortunate to have a sprinkler system installed this year .. yes .. I am very spoiled .. yet I am dead serious about not relying on it too much and rethinking plants even though I have been trying to go more drought tolerant and natural the past few years as it is.
Will you be rethinking as well ?
I just visited Barb's blog and read that she is thinking some what the same ideas as well while she recuperates from her back complaining to her ? LOL
She has some great books on her reading list you might want to have a peek at too.
Mean while just a few pictures of the garden end June .. early July .. those droplets are from the luxury of a little rain and the sprinkler system.
I hadn't noticed how pretty Bressignham Beauty astlibe flowers were until I took that moment.
