Thrifty Thursday: Save water in a rain barrel!

Hello, adventurers!

Well, the dog days of summer have arrived, and, I’m ashamed to say that I’m already craving pumpkin spice…and even listening to some Christmas music. I know. I know.

But anyway, back to summertime. The plants in the garden are thirstier than ever, but one thing is different. This is the first year we have used a rain barrel.


Who says that aesthetics need to a take a back seat when shopping for a functional item for home and garden? A  rain barrel in the style of an urn is a great way to reserve soft, rain water for your thirsty plants while adding interest to your special outdoor space. You can even create a “little world” on top. 🙂


What is your favorite plant? Let me know in the comments! Thanks so much for reading. 🙂

Happy Trails!
