And I can braid it.
I read so often about the naughty lawn,
as in the environmental wasteland of a typical lawn.
The water waste, the chemical mayhem.
We chose ours well, it isn't your everyday grass patch.
Our grass is native to our area. We obtained the seed from a local ecological restoration company and established it with winter rain. Our lawn is long enough to lay over and provide it's own cover and mulch. It is beautiful!
Now that it is well established, it needs to be mowed
maybe two or three times a year.
It won't die if it completely dries out. It just goes dormant and springs
back to life when it gets watered again.
Our lawn lives next to our organic garden, where we grow food in every season. Colven and I go out and lay on it and check out all the life in the lawn. It's an amazing wealth of insects and worms. We also lay on it just to take in the clouds, or talk about funny silly things, or tickle. I can picture us out there in just a few short years musing about the meaning of life and all that it holds.
I love our lawn.
