Drink in Drought
Our area in the Texas Hill Country just finished the hottest June in recorded history. The drought has now surpassed the last one (2005-2006), which surpassed the 1950's dustbowl years. Trees are dying in the hills.
It looks like the frenzy of hummingbird migration every day now at our feeders as the tiny wonders try to survive and raise families in 110F temperatures.
It's hard to watch the old trees die and the creatures suffer.
