still in a drought in Ohio...

my bushes are green and I am thankful for that. My grass has been brown for weeks now. I have not had to have it mowed for over a month. It looks like a desert around here. We did finally get some rain and I have only a few specks of grass looking even remotely green. I am thankful for the rain we got though.

Prior to that rain the grass was all brown....just really brown..looked like dried straw. It was really bad. I don't think I have any pics of it like that. Now I have a few sprigs of green sprouting up here and there.

I guess it is starting to make a comeback now with the moisture...but since I get full sun and have no shade trees...my yard may take a long time to recover. It saves me paying the mowers...and I really don't mind having brown grass..I am just thankful my bushes and the neighbor's trees so far have not died off or suffered too much.

That's about what ours was last year. Most went totally dead; I was surprised this spring when most did come back. We kept watering about 3 small yards until they greened up. I still have 4 patches (about size of car)that are just dirt. We had 12 straight days of rain lately. They are bringing corn & milo in.
