It's not a lot, but yes, we've had some big beautiful snowflakes falling around here!!!
Hannah is standing beside our rain barrel. Rob put a piece from the gutter to make it go straight into the barrel and a screen on top so leaves and bugs are filtered out! We watered our garden all summer with 2 of these 60 gallon barrels!

What a nice picture. We had a little snow in Chicago yesterday but it is very cold. I like your idea with the barrels. I will have to tell me husband about it!

I am going to be doing a giveaway this week on my blog so check it out!

I want to do that for our garden next spring. We didn't have one this year because we had just moved. The rain barrel is such a good idea.

We too want rain barrels. I hope we can do it for next spring.

Lovely picture of Hannah.

HOW COLD is it over there ? It's suppose to SNOW here this weekend. I just been working a lot here lately. Im not used to this COLD weather thing (compared to GA). It just makes me wanna HIBERNATE at HOME.

Oooh! It looks like the fun is just beginning over there, makes me miss Canada even more.
Here spring is finally here....just the wind & rain won't let up. It is such a pain!
The barrels are a great brother has them too, they are so handy for the garden & vegetable patches.
Keep well...hugs all round.

That's what we need instead of dumping out the water our dehumidifier collects......hmmmm...the wheels are turning!
