It Used To Be Green. Day152 year of the Dog.

It may look like Syd is in a harvested wheat field but no, he's actually sitting on what I used to call my lawn even the weeds have shrivelled.
Poor Syd - you look so confused and hot. We had a downpour at 9.30 last night and it really did go for it. What a treat - now back to muggy! Didn't ever think I'd see a downpour as a treat :)

we're greening up already!

Yikes. I water my little patch of lawn at least 3 times a week to keep it from coming like this. So sad to see it like this. At least Syd doesn't seem to be too bothered with the heat.

@mandygravil . I never thought I would be jealous of someone enjoying a downpour but unlike my grass I am positively green with envy. 😎

@anniesue. I wish we were.

@sangwann . Alas my patch is a bit too big to water, taking me all my time to keep the flowers alive. 🙂

Wow, is that normal or is this year especially dry?

What a shame that your grass is suffering in the heatwave.

@joev . No not normal we have to go all the way back to the summer of 1976 to equal these conditions. Earlier in the year it seemed to rain continually but soaring temperatures and no rainfall whatsoever in at least five weeks possibly more I've lost count.😎

@keenamateur . I'm managing to keep the flowers watered but the grass is to big a task.

My lawn is the same, I now wonder if it's gone too far to survive, just like some of my plants that died in the snow!

@bigmxx. I know what you mean I've never seen it this bad and like you I lost a few plants in the winter .

@chrisiow Quick update, we had two hours of slow rain today so hopefully there will be grass news tomorrow! 😊
