yes, that's true. I was referring to the NATURAL landscapes and vegetation which in fact do depend on rainfall and will be dry and golden brown sooner rather than later when the rains cease. many folks "back east" who live in climates that do have summer rain may not "get" that those areas over here that don't get artificial irrigation during the long dry summers will loose the "lush" green look that they have at this time of year.
