Today started out quite warm, but cooled rapidly.

I went out to water plants.  It's been dry for so long, things are wilting.  Also the mulberries and black raspberries are ripening, but not tasty.  :/  I got a few good berries off one tree; everything else has been either sour, or dried up.  I suspect the lack of rain during the ripening period is to blame.

Today's big news was the mourning doves fledging.  \o/

Yeah, no water makes for sad berries.

Yay, doves!

Odd, I would think drought would help concentrate the flavor of the berries. I don't want to speculate too much, but you don't think it could be disease too, could you?
