This two-day-a-week watering schedule is killing me.  I can’t stand to see my lawn stressed.  We are doing all we can to help it along and still stay within the new watering rules.  By applying fertilizer and upping the watering time a little it seems to be doing a little better.

What I don’t understand is that some people that are letting everything die.  Is the drought an excuse to not ever do yard work again or are they so concerned about the water shortage that they stopped watering completely?

My backyard has a few azaleas and hydrangeas that don’t like to be ‘dry’.  Luckily they are in the shade, but I admit that on those extra hot days I have been sneaking them an extra bucket of water.  That keeps them and me happy.

 

 

Hydrangea... they are so beautiful I can't let them die!
