Hillcrest is a district just east of downtown San Diego...and it's as dry as a bone. Everyone here has to have good irrigation systems...or has to water a lot by hand (like I do)..it's been quite a challenge with our water restrictions though. : > )

Hillcrest borders on Banker's Hill and is one of the oldest districts in San Diego. Many of the gardens here have been well-established for many decades.
