With this said, our region had a dangerously light precipitation winter, and everyone is concerned. Our farmer, Russ, said that he believes he will have about 33% of the water he needs to grow a profitable crop this season. Wow! Pray for rain!
See the photos that I've taken this week.

but the flowers are so cheerful
