Sometimes on the weekends I like to drive around. I spotted this empty field with the whispy clouds above one Sunday. For those of you knee deep in snow or water, this is a change of scenery. We are scheduled for more 70 degree days for the next week, which means no rain, which means California continues her drought. The Coachella Valley is now instituting a water conservation plan. I actually use very little water at my home because I don't use automatic sprinklers, like our neighbors. Theirs came on even during our rain last month! HELLO! Turn them OFF! I have also planted a lot of native trees and shrubs, so they don't use much water. I have palo verde trees, acacia, Texas lavendar, and Mexican bird of paradise. I also have two desert willows.
