Jessica at ‘Growing Up in the Garden’ did a beautiful job conveying much of what I feel about maintaining a lawn in semi-arid California. Enjoy!

It has served as a good picnic location, a runway for leaping over sprinklers, and as a soft place to land while practicing cartwheels. But, alas, it is so hard to justify in Southern California’s semi-arid climate. Now, with the a severe drought looming, it seems almost absurd.
