Monday, monday, and my pond isn’t holding water. Blah. I’m sure it’s running under the lip of the first pan again, and I’m about ready to chuck it. (Which I won’t do, of course. I enjoy watching the birds far too much, and they will be using it today. It’s cold and dry.)
This weekend, I bought a quick-release gadget to put on the end of my hose and faucet bib so I don’t risk blowing out the bib by leaving the hose hooked up all the time in freezing weather. This quick-release is a thing of beauty. I’ve used and enjoyed the plastic ones for years, but I went out and got the very pretty brass one this time, and it’s a real pleasure to use. — But I’d much rather my pond hold water.
