It has been brutally dry in South Florida. We are now in the midst of drought conditions, with warnings about wild fires and water conservation. South Florida has not had this kind of a dry spell since 1932.
On the morning news, residents are cautioned not to pull off the road onto areas of dry grass, lest a hot exhaust pipe set everything ablaze.

There are patches of green around the heads of the underground water systems. Nice for nosing around.
Even a very short walk makes the fountains look more appealing than usual.
