Blooming in our garden on Oct 2 2011
I just returned from a 10 day trip to New Mexico where the drought and fires are as bad as they were in OK.
Residents complained about a summer during which they could not be outside.
They said the summer was unpleasant and hot, their gardens failed, the fruit didn't make and the flowers were dwarf compared to other years.The newspapers said that one apple orchard had not one apple; another was burned out. Plus, the smoke from fires was around for months.
