    Default Renewed Life

    Due to our extreme drought and record setting hot summer, many trees shut down and lost all their leaves. Although we are still very much in the drought, and temperatures are still hitting 90+ almost every day, the Ornamental Pears are trying to make a comeback. The girls didn't waste any time working them.

    That is good news,

    It is odd to see pears blooming this time of year.

    Yeah. It happened in 2009, the last drought. Must be a protective measure to shut down and re-establish before winter. We got the 1st substantial rain in over a year (3"), last night. I wouldn't call it a drought buster, but since we only had 4.6" this year, it will help. It looks like a lot of areas that needed some rain, got some.
