Brits have the cheek to be appalled by the crispy Serengeti look global warming is wreaking upon their famous lawns. In Portland, Oregon, we just call that summer.

Note: Most of my rhodies are thick and hale, it’s just that this one is quietly hidden under a camellia tree and doesn’t see a speck of direct sun, hence its spindly, yet duck-friendly aspect. Can’t wait for the ducklets!

Update: Evidence of two ducklets detected.
