just really appreciating coming back from vacation yeah he's you know just reaping the rewards as smart design and you know it's been crazy hot and really dry and it's just such a tough man the Texas native said how tough they are one around the gardens and he clamped not only hang on that Friday and so it really is you know I know a lot of people get don hit about being outside in the feeding you really probably shouldn't be outside in the heat but if you plant the right plans to the right place you know it's pretty rewarding did just see how well they deal and I'm starting to see in the birds in the trees and the variance that we and all around the corner so I'm frantically running around and collect the seeds getting things ready to plant in the fall cutting things back you know get in the sand all that nice new growth underneath we just finished two big burn all the property kind of got it summer treat men and stand that separate covering so quickly yeah even without the rain is so remarkable so yeah it's been kind of beautiful and kind I know it sounds silly bag you know it really is a great time to visit the card it just looks really last all that bring rain really made the difference in really held on in the soil and the hand down the heat it's pretty nice you know I may have said down there this week actually I'd like to see the the area that will we were used to control burn of a move yeah now what if all sides so now the fall you can walk the research trail me right in the middle of it and that's a really great way to see how things respond and the stuff coming back I mean millions are coming back evenly actresses coming back they're probably about three inches call now it's really remarkable thing come back and to see the wildlife response that they really it's interesting to see different plants and animals are animals and birds react to the to the bar and for some reason crows are really excited and we got a lot of credit on the property and

right place in a I have to say even with this drought turn that we've taken I still have just barely water my garden is here and yeah our our beds are for the most part irrigated but very frugal
