Desert Transformed, Part II

After the underground sprinklers were installed, the new sand smoothed out, and the sod/grass laid, the men added a wide strip of white pebbles. Palm trees were brought in. Finally the workers planted flowers in the sand.

Our new front entrance. It is beautiful - the grass, palm trees, the pebbles and flower seedlings. I soak in the greenery with my eyes and it calms me.
My children see the same area and are skeptical. They wonder if the new landscaping might be just for show. But after they make some inquiries they're relieved: in two weeks the grass will be strong enough to endure their soccer games.
