One would think with all the cutbacks in funding and impending budget crises everywhere there would no be enough thyme for such nonsense as this in California:
This couple in Las Angeles is being sued for removing a water eating lawn. Now I love lawns and defend their place in the landscape. But who am I or you for that matter to force someone to spend money to water a lawn they don't want.
Anyway spring is just around the corner and it is seed starting thyme!
