The Drought Garden
It's not much, just an honest look at what it's like to have a garden now. It's a far cry from a few years ago, even a summer garden. I took pictures of the few roses blooming, not much out of about 65 roses. I had made moats around the roses filled with leaf mulch, and this held the water in really well and the roses began to perk up. I went out one morning and they had all been destroyed, with the leaves raked away and the roses left baking in the sun when I came home from work. My guess is a desperate raccoon, who was looking for snails in a last-ditch effort to locate food of any kind. I haven't seen a single snail since, where before the garden was filled with them.
