The flowers and plants lining Highland Avenue in Birmingham’s historic Highland Park Neighborhood are spectacular and beautiful. We absolutely love them and the city does an incredible job.
But, we are in the middle of a drought that is about to get worse. This video of the flowers and plants being watered today (October 12) along Highland Avenue will likely be the last “watering” of these flowers/plants for a good while, especially now that the Birmingham Water Works Board is considering the implementation of strong water conservation measures.
Here is the latest from the U.S. Drought Monitor.
Unfortunately, there is no rain in the forecast until October 21st.
