What A Weird Color!
I'm getting very used to a no-lawn lifestyle, so much so that the beautiful velvety green of this estate's meticulously groomed lawn took me aback. Soon only the 1% will be able to afford the water for this. The news reported that LA's water will be going up 3% soon. 3%! Ha! Ha! Ha! I laughed at that. Ours is scheduled to be going up another 26%, after last year's 25% increase. 3% sounds good to me.
Those young-ish bare trees are some kind of Platanus, I think. Nice bark:
Nearby was this pot, which was so out of the ordinary I took a second look at it.
A coral bark maple with a wooly blob of Helichrysum on each side of it, and a "string of bananas" Senecio dribbling down the middle. Haven't seen that combo before. Almost as much a visual shock as that beautiful lawn in this dry dry year. I wonder what their water bill looks like. Scary, probably.
