- the soiled goose pool water irrigates our fruit trees and food gardens,
- stale water bowls are dumped onto the compost piles to keep them moist,
- used dishwater takes care of the ornamentals (planted by a previous owner),
- and the "warm up" water from our shower is stored in a bucket and waters whatever else is in need.
Ah well. I quietly give thanks anyway, and hope the rain doesn't hear it and go away out of spite. Superstition is a persistent habit, isn't it?
