Ah summer. Here I am pruning the petunias. You’re supposed to just pinch back the old blossoms, but petunias are sticky, so I use a pair of scissors.
It’s a hot job. A guy needs a drink of water. How nice that my peepster brought out my water bowl.
So, I’m wondering where We might get water to refill my bowl once I’ve drained it dry. (Remember, it’s HOT where We live.) Inside from the kitchen tap (one with a filter attached, of course) or from a garden hose?
Wait just a minute before heading over to the side of the house, peeps, to refill my bowl. Put that hose down. In the “who knew?” category, I felt it imperative that I share a little known fact with you today.
I have a new friend. His name is Bosun Dawg. He’s got a PAWSOME blog. Hop on over and check out his post about lead-free garden hoses. It’ll change the way you think about watering your yard, let alone giving a drink to your 4-legged friends.
Thanks, Bosun Dawg. You’re a regular plethora of good information. And We love your photographs, too.
