We are having a record breaking dry spell here in the PacNW. Over 50 days with no rain (I did feel 3 or 4 little drops about a week ago, but that doesn't count). The good news is....all of the slugs have shriveled up. The bees are very thirsty, though. I have put out a couple of watering holes for them. This one is their favorite. It is a shallow birdbath filled with polished stones. It allows the bees to get a drink without the risk of drowning. There are 9 honey bees in this photo, and an opportunistic yellow jacket (click to enlarge).
