It sure has been hot and dry around here the past few weeks. Although a little relief is forecasted as far as temperatures, there still is no significant rainfall predicted. So it will be more of the same – dry cracked soil and brown plants and lawns. It is pretty mild and really no big deal for me, considering what many people go through with weather extremes. I imagine farmers are having a tough time with their crops and the intense heat (for this part of the country) doesn’t really help anyone.

Here are a few of my neighbors flowers, which have seen better days.

      Thank you Helen. It’s crazy how one area is deficient in one thing while the other area is overabundant.

      Thanks AW. I just thought the poor things were worth showing. And you are right about the emotion – they do reflect the feeling of the weather.

    We had virtually no precipitation to speak of this winter in northern Nevada. While I’m reasonably used to a dry season, we usually at least get a spot of green. Not so this year. It’s been horrible and I just photoblogged on it today. Great capture, but so sad.
