Tough Grass!

So, when last we saw our slightly scatter-brained and distracted hero:

  • Drought – epic, four years long, we’re all gonna die, or at least not be able to flush toilets and take showers real soon now
  • Turn off sprinklers for 9+ months
  • “Dead” lawn – we’ve had a couple of “showers” with trace amounts, and some must blow over on the breeze from all of the neighbors who water twice a day, seven days a week. Right?
  • Maybe not drought? Getting mixed messages, maybe May rain in Rockies and NorCal mean we’ll squeak through and now there’s an El Niño year maybe? Probably?
  • Turn sprinklers back on for one day
  • Get record rain for a day in July, lightning, thunder, flash flooding, the whole magilla
  • Go out this morning…

It might not look so dramatic in the pictures, but forty-eight hours ago this patch of lawn was as brown as it can get without being “just dirt.” This morning it was noticeably greener all over.

Granted, we have a long way to go before we get to “lush” or “verdant,” but since I was wondering if I had killed it dead and watering was going to be a futile exercise, it’s nice to see it showing signs of life so quickly.

That’s some tough grass!

I’m going to use it as a role model and hope that someone keeps me watered. I may need it.
