Morning all, we had some rain last night and it looks like some more on the way, dark portentous clouds...
Carla, I just love your garden! Don't know where to start really, and I'd be raving about it all day! Besides a succesful gardener you make some great photgraphs as well! Well done you!
Water butts are big plastic or wooden barrels that you use to collect rain water in.When searching for a pic to show you I came across these 2 examples, the first a more unusual one :

Ok, I have to move to the office now, they're reparing the concrete in the balcony above me, using big drills and after last night I'm a bit senstive to loud sounds...
