Life’s been on the busy side lately. With a few out-of-town events and family trips, combined with twice-weekly baseball games for my son, it’s been over two weeks since I last walked through my garden with camera in hand. We haven’t been watering as much because of our schedule, and the garden is certainly showing signs of suffering through the extreme dry weather that’s persisted since mid-summer.
Some rain fell last night and early this morning, but the soil shows little trace of it. After getting the sprinklers going in the severely thirsty areas, I was able to grab a few images of some plants that are shrugging off the dryness to provide continued beauty in the garden.
