Waiting for spring



Waiting for spring, originally uploaded by dewelch.

Took a few cold minutes between the raindrops to grab some picture of the garden. This older watering can was left out and ended up gathering a bit of rain to use later.

I have thought about installing some rain barrels int he garden, but the work and expense involved never seem to overcome the thought of how little rain we get most years, even in the winter months. While this year is turning out to be nicely wet, we have had drought years where it didn’t rain more than a few inches the entire year.

Maybe I just need to “step up” and get the barrels installed, much like I did with the compost piles a few years ago. Those have certainly ended up being very useful, maybe the same could be said for rain barrels.
