So as even non-California residents know, we are in the midst of a terrible, years-long drought. While most of the attention falls on agriculture, today I want to spotlight the Aunties' back yard which I observe carefully for several hours each morning and evening.
As you can see, the lawn, alas, she is no more. Soon, however, the lovely smooth dirt you see spread out so delightfully below will be covered up by . . . yes, you guessed it: Beautiful artificial turf, just like them hated Cowboys play on in Dallas. Stay tuned, Kitties!
