Don’t recognize this? Well, how about this?
Yes, folks, it rained yesterday! We squirrels were so excited, we actually scampered through the warm puddles–and there were too many! It was like the old, hard, dry ground didn’t recognize what was happening to it, and let the water run off!
That’s how dry it is. The plants are suffering, the weaker dying, others dropping leaves early, ’round here leastwise. And for northern Virginia that little bit of rain we had yesterday isn’t going to make much difference. If your area is in the same state and you can, water your plants and set a sprinkler on those street trees and shrubs–they have it the worst for trying to catch rain on the least amount of ground.
Thanks from this old squirrel, who uses those trees everyday!
