After 6 weeks with no rain,
...(yes, in Holland, where it used to rain almost
everyday, where rhyzomes used to rot away, where you had to wear rubber boots,
where you had to build dykes to protect you from flods),
here, in Holland i have to water the iris
On the picture, there are the seedling pots, that
have to be watered everyday anyway, then, last year seedlings, that are
desperate for water, then in the back some of the future beds that are ready but
so dry i can replant anything, then the unturned soil ( that has to be turned
soon) that is like concrete.
When i compare with the garden 3 weeks ago... so
fresh and lush, i start to understand you, in Arizona...
Still won't swap to cactuses though, there is
plenty of water underground here, and we may water, night and day if we
please, with no limitations......yet!
