Before They Dry Out

We're barely into spring, and the summer fires have already begun. This isn't England.  We don't have rain for more than half the year, and even humidity is at a premium, rare in most parts of the country, Land of Israel, to be more exact.

I took the following two pictures not all that long ago, but since then they've dried out quite a bit.

Pictures aren't real life.  Time stands still when photographed.

Inconceivable, from a place where it's still only 12°, no end to the rain in sight, and an "infinite" expanse of fresh water (Lake Ontario) just downtown.
I'm training myself to garden in sub-irrigated (self-watering) containers and reuse gray water, but I'm sure it will still be a tough adjustment...

Think of it as a fun, or challenging adjustment to look forward to. And then after a few years in Israel, you'll declare that you're cold in the winter. That's when you'll know that you're a real Israeli!
