My sister is living and blogging in Ireland for a year. Her blog is Family Hiatus, and she sent me this picture today:
The subject line of the email read: Irish Sprinkler System. It’s a great idea: a recycled water bottle turned into a mini soaker hose. All you have to do is poke tiny holes in a bottle. Pins work well; tacks are a little too big.
As clever as the idea is, it needs some American flair to lose the litter look. Don’t get me wrong; I’m a huge fan of recycling in the garden:
It just has to be pretty and colorful, so here’s my American twist on the Irish sprinkler system:
The first step was to find a better bottle. Easy-there was a pomegranate tea in my fridge with a cute red heart in the logo and a mint green cap. But it still looked like trash lying around the garden, so I added a handful of red marbles to finish it off. Much better!
