Dane-sized Water Sprite
I use our two bore-fed sprinklers at Granite Glen often, in a valiant attempt to hold the crispy dry browness (over two months of no rainfall will do that to a once-green vista!) at the fenceline. It’s a fact of country living that even if the situation in the paddocks is dry and dire and depressing, morale stays reasonably high when workmen and women can come home to a little bit of greenery.
It’s good for the soul.
And essential for mental health.
So says Dr BB anyway!
The only real drawbacks of this watering activity are:
1. The bore water is pretty dirty – it stains anything light-coloured (fences, house walls etc)
2. I have to remember to turn them on. And off. And move them occasionally.
3. Sometimes the sprinklers play up with all the grit and sediment coming through the hoses.
So I was blaming the sediment for suddenly discovering that a sprinkler I had carefully set up with a low, wide spray between the house and carport was suddenly spurting long straight bursts against the creamy house walls and our white car…
Should I let the photos do the talking?
Yes I know.
Naughty. Ridiculous. Dog.
