Sepia Dry

Dry Grass

Dry Grass

The smoky haze from forest fires continues to blanket this part of the world, even though the fires themselves are hundreds of kilometers away.  With the sun shining through smoke, everything has a yellowish brown tint.  Constance and I went for a very short walk to Beacon Hill Park at lunch time and saw a lot more yellow and brown. The grass usually dries up, but later in the summer – the dryness does seem very early and very yellow…last year the long grass in the park wasn’t mown until mid-August.

Dry Bushes

Dry Bushes

These bushes have flowers that usually blossom and then promptly dry up – this is also normal! The leaves are still green!

Dry Trees

Dry Trees

This big Garry Oak  is a victim of a “summer limb drop” which apparently happens to many kinds of tree, but most often to Oak trees, and is not related to drought conditions. At the moment rain is predicted for Next Monday, almost a week away – we hope the prediction comes true!

  1. hoping you do get some rain soon. It is raining here again…we are pretty saturated…sad that it can not be shared. love the sepia tone of your photos. Constance looks so serene and composed.

  2. When we lived for a time in the SEastern part of the US, we experienced drought conditions for a number of years. We were used to rationing water. Coming back to the Midwest for a visit and seeing no one concerned about water usage reminds me of how we many times realize that water abundance is surely a gift (versus being inundated with it). I too pray that your area will be blessed with rain soon. Take care.
