Dry, Dryer, Driest

Some dry-looking plants along the walking path at work.

We are enjoying a long run of crazy nice weather. We’ve had about a full week of highs in the 80s, windy, and dry.

On Saturday Shana asked me to dig a hole to plant a new shrub rose. I dug down about 18 inches and it was bone-dry the entire way. I’ve never seen it that dry before.

We’ve been watering that rose, and other parts of the yard all weekend. We’re not looking for lush green grass, but want to get some moisture in the ground before the inevitable freeze and snow.

But we will enjoy the shorts in mid-October while we can!
