Time To Water Our Lawns

Day 250 of My Italian Learning Journal*
_____________________

It appears that we are having a rather short Spring weather this year. The temperatures during the day are already in the 80s and 90s . . . and no rain. That means start watering the lawn. The last several years I have been using adjustable lawn sprinklers with timers. I strive to conserve water and I water the lawn in sections for short periods of time. In some ways, it is strange that our city is on the of Texas, yet at times we do experience periods of near drought. (Corrections to any part of my practice script in Italian below are welcome.)

Ascolta Questo:
  • Il nostro clima primaverile è stato molto piacevole.
    Our Spring weather has been very pleasant.
  • Tuttavia, i giorni caldi del sud del Texas sono già qui.
    However, the warm days of South Texas are already here.
  • L'irrigazione dei nostri prati è importante, così come la conservazione dell'acqua.
    Watering our lawns is important and so is water conservation.
  • L'irrigazione dei prati è a volte limitata alle prime ore del mattino e nel tardo pomeriggio.
    The watering of lawns is sometimes restricted to early in the morning and late in the afternoon.

Alla prossima!
