An Update On My Lawn

We have now gone over 2 months without significant rain.  We are 8 inches below average for the year.
Avoiding monoculture is always a good idea -
even on lawns!  Drought-proof lawn courtesy of
multiple species of plants.

As a result, my lawn is getting a bit crispy - but just a bit.

The clumps of grass that have survived my neglect for the past 34 years are brown and crisp, but the plantain, violets, and especially the thyme are doing just fine.

In fact, the thyme is looking better than it ever has.  

The result is that while my no-work lawn is not lush and green, it looks just fine.
