that fill the air
as drowsy insects hum around
in the meadow
is the place of secret magic
where nature alone
Even though we have an underground sprinkler system,
we still like to walk around our garden and hand water baskets and pots.
I have a collection of very old galvanized watering cans that I've picked up at garage sales over the years. Some have been "retired" from watering duties, but I have a few that are perfect for the job with lovely large handles and spouts. Perfect for giving baskets and pots of flowers a much needed refreshing drink in this hot, humid Summer weather.
