There is always water flowing here but with zero rainfall for the best part of a year this had died to a barely visible trickle just when it should have been a raging torrent in winter and spring. There was a little rain and snow a few days before this photo was taken and this is the result. But the stream was as full as this in June and July last year! So unless there is substantially more rain soon, serious problems lie in store. The blue-flowered bushes are rosemary.
