The grass is still green for now. Those days are numbered with the rains fading off to nothing. The drip system I put in last year ensures the flowers will continue blooming and I have to say I feel blessed to have my own private botanical garden left for me by previous owners. A half acre of land is nothing to laugh at when it comes to weed control and foxtail abatement. The satisfaction of seeing the weeds cut back is a good sense of accomplishment. Tomorrow between other chores I need to rake up the dead stuff so any further moisture and sun can try and keep the real grass green for as long as possible. Last year I added four areas of fake grass. One larger flat area where the fogs like to hang out in the morning. An area of grass under the hammock and then under the picnic bench and lastly in front of the garden shed. These patches have wound up fitting in great and give the dogs a place to hang out in the differnt levels of sun of the day. The grass under the picnic bench was the only way I could keep the dogs from digging there!!

About your author
I grew up on the 'Spice Island', the island of Grenada located in the West Indies in the Caribbean Sea. My childhood years on the island forever was the best childhood a kid could hope for with an excellent education. I have dreams of retiring to Grenada someday but not on the near horizon. For now I live in the San Francisco Bay area and am blessed with a wonderful job as an Aircraft Maintenance Technician with Southwest Airlines in Oakland, Ca. I have been in the Aviation business since I was 18 years old initiated in the field by The United States Navy which I joined at age 17. I also do IT work, computer networking, security cameras for home or office and have set up smart homes. I love photography, drone flying and photography with my drone. I love my dogs more than anything and overall I just enjoy learning new things.
