I’M SO READY FOR SPRING!
One thing about the weather here, though. Me, I grew up in California. If you want a garden or a lawn, you need a sprinkler system. It’s a subject of humor to see sprinklers running in the daytime when the heat of the sun is blazing down. You can also see sprinklers watering the asphalt sometimes.
When I moved here to Chicago over fifteen years ago, I visited a friend at his home. His lawn was a lovely, even green – and I couldn’t see a single sprinkler!
“Wow,” I said. “Did you install a hidden sprinkler system or drip?”
He looked puzzled. “Sprinklers?”
“For the lawn!”
“There are no sprinklers.” Superior tone. “We don’t need them here.”
Huh. Imagine that.
