Another caprice relating to a restless hot night, in the wee hours when I ventured into the front yard, naked, to water the trees. In the midst of our arid zone the non-indigenous population continues to emulate their coastal counterparts in an attempt to maintaining the sacred Ozzie lawn. So, a bit of self-parody at work here, though I hasten to add, I uprooted the lawns at my address and replanted with local natives.
