Lush green in the season of drought
RE: Restoring a rich beauty on Victoria North (July 7)
So, here I am, sitting in my garden swing with my morning coffee and my Spec. I am looking with admiration at the featured garden and lawn on Victoria St. in Hamilton and then looking up at my crisp yellow lawn here in Dundas. Hmmmm ... Is there a difference in the weather between Hamilton and Dundas? Are we not all in a severe drought?
On closer look at this lovely garden I see no evidence of drought-tolerant plantings or any awareness of xerographic strategies. I would hope that the Trillium Award folks would take into account a participating citizen’s awareness of responsible water consumption in times of weather crises such as we are all experiencing right now.
It is painful to watch one’s garden shrivel up; I sure hate to be cynical but just saying — that level of green lushness in July 2016, strikes me as an irresponsible. Anne Parker, Dundas ( yellowish/brownish)
