Central TX is in the midst of a severe drought and high temps over 100 degrees every day. We have our garden, feeders and birdbaths for the critters that pass thru our yard but recently discovered the birds and squirrels enjoy some chilled fruit - strawberries are their favorite but a grape will do in a pinch!
