Bringing The Outdoors In!

Our yard suffered terribly from the recent attack of drought here in Texas. The grass have turned brown and crisp. The grounds were parched and the plants lifeless. A law had been implemented that limited us to water the plants two times only each week. With drought absorbing what little amount of water has been left in the soil, watering two times a week was not enough. We lost a lot of our bushes -2 of my beloved azaleas died. Almost all the water-loving veggies withered.  Our 15 feet magnolia is barely there -still 75% parched! It broke my heart to see them die before my eyes, but we decided to let them go than use up what little water Houston has saved on its reservoirs.

Alas, the drought is over and the air is once again crisp and cool. Our yard is starting to be in full swing. The flowers are giving back! Once again, am able to cut some roses from the yard. I got lots last Saturday. Yay!
