Today I am burying my face, not in the sand, but in my flowers. We may be experiencing drought conditions in Western Massachusetts, but my longstanding buddies are standing tall. I’m pretty sure my shade trees are responsible for their healthy demeanor. This year’s drought is seriously harming our local farmers, their corn and tomato crops are suffering, I hope our rain situation turns around sometime soon, if only for their sakes.
Our backyard “lawn” hasn’t done as well, it has become an interesting beige color, between the sun and the dogs, it hasn’t had a prayer. I’m sure next year’s grass will come in ready to be green in spite of being tortured this summer.
