Dry Cypress Swamp




Earlier this week I mentioned that we have had a severe lack of rain this year and you can tell that is true by looking at these cypress trees. If you look at their trunks, you can see where the waterline usually is. We actually got a few days of rain this week, but it will take quite a bit more to bring this swamp back to normal.

Hi Lois, I've never seen such trunks, interesting shots!

Have a nice weekend, Karl

I would love to bring some rain to you so now and then. We often have days it is raining the whole day. It is not distributed fair in the world.

In Costa Rica I can see the water line on the mangrove roots, but it is not subject to varying amounts of rain because it is tidewater that is dependent on the ocean, which is not receding.

Gosh that's amazing Lois. When I looked at the picture before reading the words, I did think the trunks looked a little odd at the bottom, you really have had a dry summer. Lets hope you get some decent rainfall soon.

Oh, dear! I hope that there's no permanent damage to those trees! According to the water mark, it's not good for them, is it?!

Too much rain, too little rain... Can't we all just get along? Weather confounding!

It seems as though we've had plenty of rain in this area...and I assumed that was the case in Tallahassee...too bad. I think these are hearty trees, though. Hopefully!

By the way, I deactivated my FB account...it was taking way too much time! :-)

Poor trees. Sending positive thoughts that rain will come soon.

I hope they don't dry out. It's really sad to see so many trees suffering from the weather.

Love these trees, they are so typical of your part of the world.
