So glad you got rain earlier! It helps with the water table.Yeah its starting to really heat up. We had heaps of rain this year, by March we had already had more rain than the entire 2019.
I have everything crossed that we don't get a repeat of last year
How is the weather currently in Oklahoma ?
Ryan- Really glad to hear this! We had major fire damage this year in our state. We are badly in need of rain to start a process of regrowth in the mountains where we used to live.It sure does help. Everything seems so much greener this year. Even in parts of the country that were terribly burnt by the fires last year, so much growth which will hopefully help wildlife numbers to start increasing again.
That is an odd tree. It looks sort of like a type of euphorbia.Due to a crazy 2020 I did not plant a vegetable garden this year, by the time I got around to even thinking about it, it was a little too late. With the weather we have had this year ( very mild) I think many things would have struggled. We really haven't had a summer at all (yet). The weather forecast is predicting a hot weekend with Temps over 40 ( 104f ). In the 13 years at this property, I have never seen so much "green " throughout the place, at this time of the year. Its been a nice change from the last few years.
I was going thru a heap of trees that I have under cover (until I can get them into the ground) and I came across this one. Its native to Africa and known as a parrot plant.
