We put a rain barrel beside my flower garden over the weekend.
The garden is shaded by a crab apple tree that prevents most rain
showers from properly soaking the ground, so we have a soaker hose
hooked up to the barrel and running under the mulch.
We thought it would be fun to get the barrel with a fountain on the
top. I knew the birds would find it and since it's just under a window,
I have a nice up close view of the drinks and baths.
It's 86F degrees here today, so I'm sure it feels wonderful!
This little lady eventually dove right in!
