Rain-Less Days

With hurricanes dancing to the East and South of us , you would think a little rainfall would be in our forecast, but nary a drop has fallen.
Three weeks now, since we've had a decent rain, and trees and flowers are showing significant signs of stress.
If the head gardener didn't take it upon himself to water the flowers each day, I'm afraid they too would be long gone.
Even the songbirds seem to be more scarce, and nests are emptying fast.
Cooler nights, have arrived, and shopkeepers on Main Street are displaying their colorful pots of Chrysanthemums.
A sure sign that Autumn is fast approaching,

Jo, I am sorry about you not getting rain. We had too much in spring and draught like summer. Got some rains thru here a few times, that really helped.
It's still enjoyable to look around your yard. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

I do hope you get some rain soon. We could use some too. I just love that photo of all the deer drinking from the pool (pond?) You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
