Drought imposes restrictions on water consumption and I have suspended automatic watering in the terrace. My emergency plan consists in:
- mop the floor without detergents and use the dirty water for the garden.
- Fill a bucket with the water that we let flow in the shower while waiting to reach the appropriate temperature.
I hope this will be enough to keep alive wonders like:
new shoots in a rose
rock rose (cistus albidus)
topped lavender (Lavandula stoechas)
That, in collaboration with a lost swallow, announce, just in case I hadn’t realised yet, that spring is here.
