Here in Texas, we are under a “red flag warning” covering the entire state! We have so many wildfires erupting that it ‘s hard to keep up! Evacuation orders are going out all around where we live, so far, we are only experiencing occasional falling ash from nearby fires. We did smell smoke last night and this morning also!
Today is the first cool day we’ve had, it was 63 wonderful degrees this morning! So nice to have a break!
The firefighters are struggling to keep up and try to contain these many wildfires! Many have had to go to the hospital due to heat exhaustion. They are working around the clock and many places are taking donations of water etc. for them! The Bastrop fire has consumed 30,000 acres so far! This includes half or more of the State Park there! And this is only one fire in our area!
Been enjoying the birds at the feeders!
Can you spot the redbirds as they wait for their turn at the feeders? I love all those red specks in the green trees!
This is a very common site these days, I just pray that the wildfires don’t affect the birds, so many farmers and ranchers are selling off their cattle etc. because they can’t sustain them due to the drought, and now the wildfires are threatening everything and everyone!
