My Garden, Then and Now

Living in Mbarara we have two seasons, rainy and dry. The dry seasons seem to be shorter with less rain than before. Here are 2 photos showing my little flower garden in December, 2015 and the second photo shows my garden today.
It has been so dry that the River Rwizi (the town's water supply) is now just a small stream. There was a sprinkle of rain in the distance yesterday that created a beautiful rainbow but not a drop fell at our home. With the river so low, we are not getting any water at home, we are having to buy water in jerry cans for bathing and cooking and for the birds.
