Climate change, global warming, drought. Call it what you will; when you live close to the land, you pay attention. I was disconcerted to learn we would not have our water share this year and that my neighbor would not be able to allow my horses to graze his pasture until it recovers from all this dry weather. I rigged up some ropes and put them in the lawn. I had planned to get rid of a large part of this grass with xeriscaping, but now I think I’m going to need it- even if I have to water the grass with municipal water.
