An Oasis

The birds have found the watered section of our yard to be an oasis in the midst of our dry and parched land here in our corner of the world. They enjoy tucking away in the variegated willow on the cool wet leaves. The smoke has been oppressive the last couple days as the weather is changing and it seems to be stuck in place because of atmospheric pressure.

This command center has been set up in the junior high parking lot across the street from our church. Tents for the firefighters to rest in and there are food trucks and portable showers, etc.

Summer projects have come to a halt as it is unhealthy to work hard outdoors. We are looking forward to relief soon.

Hope all is well in the area you call home.

  1. Hi Ellen, I love the look of your garden. Sorry to hear about the smoke. I hope those fires can be contained soon. Interesting sight with all the tents. Those firefighters are heroes!

  2. Praying for relief in your corner. I can not even imagine the oppression of heavy smoke and forest fires robbing people of their summer days. Praying for gentle rains…

    All is well in my corner.

  3. I’m sure the birds really enjoy that oasis! Must be awful with all that smoke and those poor fire fighters!! Pray the fires end and things can get back to normal.
