WOOHOO! and WOOHOO! on both accounts :lol:

I have not listened to the farmers reports lately. We must be pretty close to drought conditions in the midwest.

Seattle is getting all our rain :evil:

Supposed to be 108 here tomorrow. YIKES!

Really concerned about the 4th. With all this dry grass it wouldn't take but a spark to set off some SERIOUS fires.

It's good for the moss on your trees. They will begin to look like "bigfoot" Washington is bigfoot country right?

Actually.. I pull the grass and leave the moss..I don't have to mow moss and it's always greener than the grass.

It would be nice to be able to transplant the moss into a prepared section of shade area in your yard. No maintenance yard ;)

Here in Illinois we have a plant called creeping charlie. Most people hate it cause it becomes invasive in their lawns. I have seen entire lawns made of the stuff and it looks just fine. No mow lawns, I like easy!!! Just don't walk on it, it has an offensive odor when crushed :roll:

I have a lot of areas covered with Vinca Minor..or periwinkle..I'd like to cover the rest with it..
My grass areas of this 1/2 acre lot consist of a parking srtrip about 8' wideX70' and about a 12x12 LAWN with a 3'x40' grass path off the side.I am getting more grass in the lower 40 about 10'x50'.The rest is natural woods and raised beds with lavarock and weedbarrier cloth under it.
About 3-4 times a year I drag out the weedwhacker for an hour and piss off the neighbors out there mowing their big grassy yards every week.In between that they are watering or applying weed and feed(Read feed-your-weed).
On the other hand..my other house sucks with too much lawn,about 1/2 to 3/4 acre..but the wife can't argue with me going up there,3-4 miles from Olympic National Park. :lol:

"Honey..Dang it!..I gotta go mow again!..just grabbing my camping gear." :roll:

Around your house is mostly shade, right? Periwinkle is shade lover?
