Wild life has been abundant in our yard lately. The birds are thirsty. The deer are hungry. Yesterday there were these 7 eating from our feeder. One day we saw 1, next day 3, now it's a herd.
Last night, something killed this dog.
It killed part of one plant too.
The entire bed was dug up almost all the way around. Our guess is an armadillo. (No actual dog was harmed in the previous photos.)
It's so dry here. Look at my tree in the front yard. Look at the dead grass too.
The pampas grass is usually 5-6 feet tall with 10 foot plumes. I doubt this is even 36 inches tall.
My three year old lilac bush from Tammy at Flat Creek Farms. I doubt it will come back.
The only green showing in front is along the sidewalk.
The blacksmith has worked hard at keeping the tomatoes alive. Some days it seems they are just alive, not much on producing. Same way with the pepper plants, they are alive, but not producing.
I was so excited that I finally got a start of the old fashioned sweet peas, and then this happened.
We gave up on the back garden. It took three days of gathering a hand full of green beans to make one serving for the two of us.
I was watering these every night, and do you think they appreciated it? I finally quit about 5 days ago.
This was a bleeding heart given to me by my co-worker. I'm hoping it just went dormant for the season.
My maiden hair grass, surprise lilies, day lilies and pink cone flowers . . . done for. Even the goose looks dead.
I'm pretty sure, from my house to your house, it's all brown . . .
