Okay, I admit that I had a hard time with the title of this post. I think it is because it is somewhat a mish-mash of topics. But, the overall theme is that these all have occurred in this month of June.
When we built our home back in 1999, we selected an extra large lot….not so that we could put a swimming pool in, but so I could plant a large garden. In place of a swimming pool, we did install a grassy area in the back garden for the kids and dogs to play on. We do not have a huge amount of grass and most of my plants are drought tolerant, since we try to minimize excess water usage. We do live in a desert after all.
The other day, I noticed some brown areas of grass amongst the green lawn. So, I decided to put our small hose sprinkler head on those areas to help green them up. Well, what do sprinklers and a warm, summer day have in common? Kids!
