The other day someone asked me if I thought California’s Governor would declare we’re no longer in a drought. And if so, would I continue to focus on creating low-water gardens.
While I’m rejoicing with all the rain that we’ve had, with our overflowing reservoirs and abundant snow-pack (as is every other gardener in the state), the question caught me by surprise.
Of course, I’m going to continue with my low-water designs! For me, gardening with the drought in mind is a way of life.
The fact remains that we live in a summer-dry climate where water should always be viewed as a precious resource. So I’ll continue doing my happy dance with every drop of water that falls, knowing full well that dry days will always be lurking around the corner.
