I do find myself in the company of many, many, many people, however, who can't be bothered to grow drought-tolerant plants. Gotta have those lush green lawns in an area where we're just not meant to have them. [Glass-house dweller that I am, let me 'fess up to being a heavy water user myself as we own a pool. Let me offer up in my defense, however, that our water bills still pale in comparison to our many neighbors' with their unnatural-for-this-area lawns.]
I do believe I've shown myself to be quite intolerant. Surprised myself, really. In any event, here's to our drought-tolerant landscape.
Whether the weather
causes others' to wither,
mine weathers no storms.
