It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’m going to try to get back into it. As a starter, a rather depressing post…
Our yard is not a happy place.
I think we’ll lose at least 3 cedars this year; we’re talking trees about 50 to 60 feet tall.
The fir trees are doing a bit better but are starting to look pretty stressed. The little sequoia (only about 20 feet tall) isn’t happy at all.
The sword ferns, which normally stand at least 5 feet tall, have all gone flat. (This makes walking in the forest… strange.)
I can’t get terribly exercised about the periwinkle wilting, given how aggressively it spreads and persists, but the salmonberries sure aren’t happy.
And I’ve never seen the catalpa stressed before.
Sigh. I wonder how much will still be alive when the rain finally does come again?
