Eric notices that they're using irrigation in their flower garden.
This is the big difference between the 18th and 21st century. During Washington's time they had no irrigation. And today they do and it's important, that's what allows them to succeed. In Washington's day during a drought the plants died, today if they have a drought the plants thrive. This is the key to their success. Irrigation is what keeps this all beautiful.
