    Well the big plus is the owner isn’t wasting a lot of valuable water on a lawn!

    I was just thinking, wow, that looks like Phoenix, when I read the caption!

    I have friends there, so I visit occasionally, but the summers there are frankly downright frightening. The place isn’t really human habitable.

    Not bleak enough. Needs bars on the windows. The kind that don’t open from the inside.

    I am wondering if those posts are the metal kind. I could see some kids making a habit using this front yard as an alternate path through the neighborhood. I’m not speaking from experience or anything.

    On another point, having lived in VegASS when I when I was 10, the scary part about a yard like this is that you actually have to weed it on a regular basis to retain it’s pristine dismal state.

    If it wasn’t for the catus it could have been Garden Grove
