My new toy

For our anniversary, my folks got us a new garden gadget - a rain barrel.
I've wanted one for a while and finally found one that wasn't a full size wine or whiskey barrel which are too big for the space.

Since I only have one downspout on the house, it's not in the perfect spot, but walking water around to the plants isn't that big an issue.

Wednesday night's thunderstorms filled my barrel, so tonight for the first time I watered the plants without turning on the house water.
