Barren Tree & Bush Follow-Up

I was out re-filling the hummingbird feeders and there was something about the late afternoon light that really drew my attention to the big tree in the back yard.

A couple months ago this tree was unexpectedly almost leafless, which is unusual. Possibly caused by the drought and super dry summer, but it’s come back strong.

The bougainvillea bush back there was also surprisingly barren in mid February. It has come back a bit, but nowhere near as well as the big tree has. It’s at maybe 50% to 60% of normal. You can still see the gas meter back under there. (When we moved in it took me a major search to figure out where that meter was hidden because of how full and lush this bush was. Not now!) We’ll see what more sun does for it, as long as I keep it watered.
