Re: Back in SC


You're right-they have to be mowed..although there has been a movement to use stuff like red clover so less mowing is needed. I wouldn't want to have to deal with it! ----- Original Message ----- From: "Johnson Cyndi D Civ 95 CG/SCSRT" <cyndi.johnson@edwards.af.mil>

Shoot, never mind the lawns, I'm talkin' about the sides of the
freeways!

Know what you mean. After 35+ years on the east coast, I never quite got
used to those lawns--"Everyman's Versailles," we called them.

Even in San Diego almost everything green you see gets some kind of

there's irrigation rain helps a lot to keep everything looking decent

Every time I go back east I spend a lot of time gawping out the car
windows at the green. "Look at all that GRASS! Somebody has to mow all

that!"

Hi all-spent the last week in San Diego. My first trip to California.
I loved the weather. My first day there I went to the zoo and confess
I was much more enamored of the plant life than the animal, although
that was interesting too.
Spent a lot of time eating and shopping and walking around downtown.
This was a work trip most of which was spent at the Marine Corps
Recruit Depot. Jim, they had a blooming Hong Kong orchid tree in the
Drill Instructors court yard.
Loved it. That was the first time I've gotten to see one actually
blooming in real life. Loved all the palms and the Jacaranda (I think)

trees were blooming too. I'd love to try one of those here but I'm
afraid it wouldn't survive the winter. But, I'm glad to be home. I
have to admit that although their weather was MUCH nicer, the plant
life wasn't nearly as lush as I thought it would be.
I guess because it's so much more rainy here? Everything at home looks

like it's grown a foot in the week I was gone.
