No rain (or extremely very little) for weeks this year during early to mid-spring, yet the plants are still growing and blooming as if nothing different was the case. Through drought, water restrictions, and more, these plants continue to thrive. They are definitely xeric or xeric-like native plant species that are extremely efficient at water consumption and usage in their biological physiology and its mechanisms at work.

 

The precious resource has most likely been distributed to them mostly through early morning dew or light mistings when the high humidity and temperatures caused condensation to appear, yet they are alive and well.

 

And I start to complain that there's no rain...like the deserts miss the rain.
