Last year was a very dry year, and the winter was mostly dry as well. Perhaps it should not be too big a surprise that a couple of shrubs now show that they needed more watering. The two bushes in front of the office window, the ones that Jeannette has occasionally pruned so she could see the garden, suffered. This one seems to have some life on one side. I am not sure yet whether we can save it.
The casualties were few. Some of the ground cover in the garden south of the classrooms died out. A couple of plants under the sign on Main Street seem to be gone. Everything else seems to be okay. Garden forecasters say, however, that some trees and shrubs may still fai, even with new rain and watering. We shall have to wait and see.
