Natives in the 'desert'

Yesterday David checked up on the project at Innisbrook in Fort Worth. Electricity and water were finally available, and the plants needed a drink post haste. The installation was completed about 2 weeks ago, there has been little to no rain, it's been hot and dry as the Mojave, and the irrigation system was inoperable until electricity had been connected. We expected to find a wasteland where our beautiful landscape once stood.

Amazingly, not one plant was lost. All are still alive, though some are struggling. He programmed the irrigation system, so now these hardy natives will get the consistent watering they need to become established.
