Pretty flowers!

Good morning everyone.

It's a dreary day outside - some rain would be nice.

It's warm and cloudy today.  So far, it's one of the rare warm days we've had on the east coast so far this summer.

Supposed to be another day in the 90's here in Denver, with "monsoon" showers predicted late this afternoon.

The map below updates a few times each hour. Here's the link for those who care:

look at the difference between one place on the west coast that says 63 and another 83 and they are virtually side by side.....that is a big difference in such a short space..

Tornado warnings until 10 pm.

The really bad storms are in the central part of the state.

this is the only bit of lawn I have now....the front verge and that is owned by the council, [council verge]



they won't let us use a sprinkler except on designated days and only after 6 pm at night and before 9 am in the morning.....it was killing me staying up all night on my designated days....so I said **** it....

if our drought goes on and people keep wasting water, there is going to be 100 % sprinkler ban and if we want to have a nice green garden, we have to hand water for hours on end or we get fined 100 bucks....

so if you don't have water problems where you are....just remember, the more people waste it, the more your wet areas and lakes dry up and then when your dams are low, they'll restrict your use or fine you...

I pay someone 22 bucks to come and mow it and do the edges...

I only use the well water for hand watering the flowers and garden.  This area has irrigation water diverted from the creek for the farms - homes get to use it when the farmers aren't using it.  Sometimesthere's lots of water, sometimes there's no water for days at a time.

Yes, it is a precious, precious resource and you never know when there will be a drought....it is all quite scary really....they're predicting another drought for Australia so everyone must be careful BUT how can you stop selfish people having long showers?....you can't....and old people who don't realize their pipes are leaking and a whole bunch of other other man made but largely preventable problems?..

My well has gone down before so I'm very cautious on water use.

People won't get the message until they have NO water.

I live in a townhome, so no lawn to water.

Besides which, should I ever run out of drinking water, I'd just have to drop a bucket off the patio and boil it.  Here's my place:
