It seems that homeowners and businesses whose pride has been hurt by the browning of their lawns are turning to the relatively expensive expedient of painting their lawns. I saw this done one time at the baseball stadium in Minneapolis for opening day. That I understood.
What these private property owners probably don't understand is that I am praying for rain. I understand that the paint will not bleed, so there will be no greening of the sidewalks and gutters. But I also understand that when the rain comes, the grass will grow again.
And zip-zap, in a couple of weeks, the mower will remove the painted blades, nature will provide the green, and the paint will be in a compost pile. How clever is that?
