Dry Weather

This dry season is turning out to be toasty. The lawns are starting to show stress and we had several brush fires in different areas around the city over the weekend. A few of the shrubs in landscapes around town also are showing stress. So far I don’t see any difference in the trees. When I got back to the house yesterday several of the container plants had dried out which is uncommon.

In addition we had strong winds over the weekend. This is the fist time I have seen strong regional winds. I is likely that we are seeing the effects of El Niño setting in.  While this is normally a fairly dry part of the year it seems to be drier and warmer than normal.
