Even though I prefer Blogger, I have a Wordpress blog at Marti's DIY for those who can't comment here. Or you can email me. (Right sidebar)

By the way, if you use Blogger and can’t comment on WordPress blogs, change to a different browser. I found that I couldn’t post to WordPress when using Firefox.

Apparently, some Wordpress blogs won't let me comment if I use my blogger email either. So if you get a comment from me from thisemaildoesntexist@_________, that's why.

Wordless Wednesday - August in North Texas

No rain since June, and very dry.  

A small animal could fall in these cracks.

And yet...

The oasis in this parched land is my pond, and the lilies in it.


  1. We have seen images of the fires in other parts of the USA. I hope that your dry spell doesn't cause too many problems. Jx

  2. We've had years like that, where the cracks are large enough to swallow small children. We've been lucky to have had rain at least once every 2 weeks this year, so it's been nice here. I love that last photo. The contrast with the pink and green really makes that flower just shine.

  3. Amazing. I love the water lily photo.

  4. Beautiful bloom!! We are really dry here too!! Went camping and all campfires are outlawed at this time. Still had a lot of fun!! I think we are due for rain next week, we need it badly!! Hope you see a little rain too. Take Care!!

  5. It's not QUITE that dry here, but I understand drought - it's been a long while since we've had a good soaking rain.
    Thanks for linking up at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/08/say-yes-to-neigh.html. I hope you have some nice rain, soon!

  6. What a lovely bloom, gorgeous image. We have had a lot of rain here this summer. Have a happy day!

  7. Beautiful bloom. Hopefully Texas gets a drink soon.

  8. Our soil is on quite a bit of clay, and we get huge cracks like that all summer.
