  1. Ms. Steele,
    I think I emailed you the other day to request use of a photo similar to this one. I am creating the San Diego County Water Authority’s new guide to water efficiency for homeowners. I would like to use the photo above where I discuss the establishment period for new plants and provide you or your blog with a photo credit. Thank you for considering my request.
