    First time I’d seen how bad it was, so graphically. I hope TS Ana will send some moisture your way, and not be hard on us.

    Esperanza is one of my fav things for the garden since someone from Texas sent me a start. In the droughts of 2007-08 here, Esperanza fared very well. This year, with ample rain, it is spectacular.

    We too are suffering from the effects of the drought. I posted pictures of what it looks like in our part of Texas on my blog.

    We are still able to water, at least for now. County Commissioners have asked that citizens be cautious about water use, but no water restrictions yet. They will come if we get no rain.

    We did get about 1.75″ of rain on 8/13, and I just did the happy dance in my back yard. It was not enough, but my plants did love it.

    I have beautiful plumbago, lantana, and esperanza blooms here. I don’t know what it would take to keep them from gracing us with their beautiful color! They are TOUGH! I am thankful for them!

  3. That drought seems almost unbelievable to those of us who are seeing it just through pictures. But a few flowers still bloom!

    Thanks for joining in for bloom day!
