Greenery is restful but plants and forrests badly need watering. There has been almost a 3 month drought in Auckland, New Zealand and it seems to be a regular feature here.
In the centre of the photo you will notice the stem of the Nikau Palm and some beads coming out of a darker shade.

Have you ever experienced a drought in the area you live in?
