The skies clouded up yesterday and left us after dropping some much needed rain. Here at the Blaus house, we received 1.30! This should go a long way to greening up the area where irrigation is not possible. I was looking at our lilac hedge in the backyard yesterday. The leaves were really wilting. So far, that is the only trees around our yard that seemed to be suffering so badly. Leighlyn, some friends of ours and I had planted them 6 or 7 years ago. In that time, I would have expected that their roots would have tapped into more water under the surface of our yard. Kinda scary when you realize that that area seems to be all tapped out...
This non-stop heat is taking so much out of our outdoor plants. Things stopped growing in parts of Western Kansas awhile back. All of their energy just went into staying alive.
Thank You, Lord, for this blessing that we have just received!!!
