Plants & Wildlife
Canyon Lake, TX

Start Date: 5/16/2017 - End Date: 5/16/2017
Yards are showing signs of stress and some browning, excluding winter grasses. Having to water more than usual; small creeks will begin to dry any day now if this upcoming wet period turns into a bust. *Almost Moderately Dry.* Have seen multiple reports of baby deer disappearing during this dry period; have also noticed this myself. No signs of fawns. Foxes have been spotted moving around earlier than usual. Just a quick overall decline in foods for scavengers and grass eaters.
