OK, that’s what I imagine this little guy was thinking as he landed with a bit of a splash.
It has been so hot and so dry for sooooo long, that the birds, squirrels and bunnies have been searching for food and water. We have plants and trees that look like they are ready to pack it in for winter, and the grass is so dry that it makes being barefoot untenable.
In response, we water the patches of grass where the bunny likes to eat, and the Mrs. tosses nuts, crumbs and crumbles out for all concerned. We have a squirrel who practically comes to the door and knocks for nuts. Last week, he actually stayed when the Mrs. said: “let me see what I can find for you.” He was waiting when she returned.
There are thunderstorms in the forecast, but we need slow, steady and sustained rainfall, not a flash-in-the-pan deluge that do more damage than good.
