Our natural environment plays a huge part in our lives in the Northwest. We love the indoor/outdoor connections and livability during most of the year. The reliability of the plants, the seasons and the views in most neighborhoods has created a basis for our thinking and our lifestyle.
I was at Sammamish City Hall the other day, and the planners were talking about concerns over our native plants. They and many of us are wondering if our natives are going to be able to survive the summer droughts that are coming earlier every year.
