It has been dry lately.  I think they need to water the garden...

Dinah Lee - I have seen the pictures!  While we don't have that here, this roof was a bit unusual to say the least...

Our county has taken bids on actually having grass put on the courthouse. It will include being mowed on a weekly basis. I personally think the world is self healing and will take care of it self.

Nice landscaping, but isn't it supposed to be on the ground?

Charles - I AGREE WITH YOU!  I was spoofing this silly craze.

James - not when it's on the roof, man!

Kathy - so it seems.  I think they could use a little more green to fix up that house!

Jay, all it needs is a soaker hose to keep in going during the summer----then again you could just move it to the NW:

Carl - I don't think that "garden" is intended...

Shadow - I bet Santa slips off that roof in December.  We don't have that out here, as you know, but I found this house on the way to an inspection and could not resist a picture.
