expressive irrigation

Only a couple areas of the garden are on automatic watering with dedicated sprinklers. The rest of the garden has to depend on rainfull and the gardener dragging a hose over to whatever needs to be watered. I’m sure that reduces how much I water because I’m very conscious of how long I’m standing there with the hose and how moist the soil appears to be getting.

  1. Like Tina, I’ve never seen a sprinkler that looked anything like that. I think we *may* need to see a photo of it in action. Just where does the water come out?

  2. That sprinkler is an old line number, for sure. And, yeah, it has you – and me! – directly in its sights. It never got the note that staring is rude. That’s the “old fashioned” for ya.
