My lawn is like a golden meadow speckled with patches of green (weeds).

Fierce and Focused Fleecy
Our grass went brown in May and vanished in June. Dust bowl city.

Skiphenge, pictured here on 14th June, was present for the midsummer solstice...



before mysteriously vanishing on 30th June...now all that is left (9th July) is the outline of its' presence.



If you build it, they will come :-)

57.5 Degrees of Pain
In the far north our 'lawns' are mostly moss anyway, and that turns brown in no time in the dry. The grass has followed where the sun hits.

Fragile Do Not Bend
Ours is an interesting mix of shades, from brown in full sun, to green in the bit that’s in full shade and benefits from water that drains from the surrounding higher land.

Mine's reminiscent of the Test Match grounds during the West Indies tour of 1976. Even the bindweed is dried out. Trying not to cut the grass if possible. Like all of us, it really needs a deluge.

Brown and crunchy (even after Friday's torrential downpour) over half of its area, but still relatively green underneath the canopy of the willow tree. Hasn't grown for weeks though. The bottom lawn, which is often to wet and boggy to mow, is full of penny-ryal and other weeds, so actually looks quite OK.

I have some blackening grass. Well, blackening lawn - I put on some weed and feed last week so hopefully it's the not-grass going black.

Got something to say?

With the grounds of estate turning brown I wondered how many of us across the nation have brown gras...
