You may have read my previous post about how pleased we were to see the monsoon rains. Sad to say, the rains did not last and we have had very little water. Although the lake still looks beautiful in the above picture appearances can be deceptive and it is at least 6 feet lower than it should be at this time of year. We should only be seeing the very tips of some of the bushes ( as in my header photo), and no exposed islands or land at the lake edge at all. We have even started watering our gardens 6 weeks earlier than usual.
It is going to be long hard summer for everyone, epecially the farmers, this year. We are eagerly looking forward to the next hoped for rain in July or August.
