Watering

Up for work at 5:30 I went out to start the sprinkler. It is supposed to be near 90 degrees again today. There is some chance of rain but I’m not banking on it. Still no sprouts visible but the old grass is looking better than ever with the new soil and all this watering. Also, it appears greener. (That could, of course,┬ájust as likely be a visual result of green against black. After all, the reason the grass is always greener on the neighbors lawn is you are looking at it from your lawn which means you are seeing the sides of the blades of grass and there is greater surface area for the light to reflect off the blade. If you look down on your own grass from above, you’d see the top and not the side of a blade–less transmission and therefore less green reflecting.)
