|Veronica stricta suffering from drought. This plant's roots are in a crack in a block wall, so it doesn't have access to a deep moist soil.|
|A small speedwell hebe (probably a hybrid between Veronica lanceolata and V. hookeriana), originally from the Maungaharuru Range, now growing in a pot in Wellington, and suffering from the drought.|
