okay...just about all of my plants out front by the road are dead...zinnia, coreopsis, monarda, red twig dogwoods, as well as crepe myrtle and assorted saplings. i've also lost 4 butterfly bushes, and i doubt that the others will make it. the only plants i've watered were the bamboo, and that takes over an hour, carting bucket after bucket of water all over the place.
is anybody else distraught over losing plants?
as i drove down river road yesterday, i realized that in some places, you could probably wade across the delaware river. when i got to flemington, i was shocked to see dead trees lining the streets. at liberty village, even the trees next to the pond had died.
and yet, try as i might, i can find no news of a drought in the northeast. is this a local problem only?
