We need rain in most of our counties here in Wisconsin. The grass is 'crunchy' under our feet. Ozaukee County, where this painting was painted really needs rain. With irrigation most of the crops are growing well, but rain is still needed. My garden here at home is being watered today from our trusty Simer water pump that is in our lake, for irrigating my neighbors and my gardens. We are so lucky to have this water source and the pump! Since we have a well for our drinking water we wouldn't be able to irrigate the garden from the well without fear of lowering our water table.
