    "lack of" or "a lack of"

    - My flowers died from a lack of rain.

    or

    - My flowers died from lack of rain.


    There are both cases in the resources I look up, so I cannot tell the difference.

    Are they both correct? or Either is wrong?

    Is there any difference in the meaning?

    They are both correct and there is no difference in meaning.
