This lengthy waterway descends from the roof on the far side of the wall, runs through all those blue barrels, drops to the ground, and then turns and makes its way out toward the yard, finally terminating a couple of feet beyond the hydrangea.
This is the counterpoint to my walk across the US. Instead of seeing a million places for just a minute each, I'm going to spend a million minutes exploring just one place. By the time I finish walking every block of every street in all five boroughs, I'll have traveled more than 8,000 miles on foot — all within a single city. Details!
Your donations allow me to keep walking full-time. If you think what I'm doing is valuable and you'd like to offer some support, I would be very grateful. On the other hand, if you think I'm a worthless bum, feel free to email me and tell me to get a job, bozo. Both are excellent options!
Blue Nile . . . White Nile
I wonder if they are collecting rain water in the barrels. ?
Always a nice Oasis along the nile!!
Taking full advantage of available rainwater–good for them!
My mom was born in December of 1929, the beginning of the depression, so her childhood was during the depression and World War II when everyone had to use everything up, unlike how we live today, and grown their own veggies or starve. I remember her telling me about the rain barrels everyone had to collect rainwater. They would use it to wash their hair and water their gardens. She said your hair never felt so clean as when using rainwater. We used to collect buckets of rain water in the summer too and shampoo our hair, and she was right. Only one soaping and rinsing required and soft non-frizzie hair (I have extreme natural curls) without having to use conditioner. I’ve seen on-line companies that sell rain barrels and living in Oklahoma where we are live in a drought more often than not, I often wonder why we gave up the practic of everyone owning rain barrels. Maybe I’ll order a rain barrel in case we ever get any more rain here. My trees are even suffering from lack of water.
