GCrain’s Watering System and the Gardener

Join me as we tour a special place.

Located on Candy Cane Lane in Redding, CA

down a partially paved private road to this driveway

enter here and you will find a garden.

The soil  is very porous and rocky. Water puddles very little. The ground looks dry on the third day after watering. So this garden gets watered every other day. The watering system is a combination of plastic pipe, hoses, timers, sprinklers on the top of 5 foot poles, oscillating sprinklers, and a bubblier. Sprinklers attached to hoses are positioned on plastic grates:

1. stability   and  2. to remember where to put the sprinkler next.

The picture gallery is of the different spots in the garden,  I’ll include flowers as we walk around the yard.

One day this rose bush is covered with blooms, that night the deer have dessert!

Trumpet creeper uses this tree as a trellis.

If you don’t find GCrain here in the potting shed,

you might find her here making a flower arrangement,

but always look first right here.

After breakfast,  her first stop of the day is with the Word of  God.

If you ever have an ‘every other day’ free and would like to see this garden freshly watered.  GCrain and Aunt S would be glad to have you come and visit with them and water for them.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I like GCrain’s “smiling pose” ‘Best’ ..in this “tour.” 😉

  2. cool post.

  3. Thanks for the tour. I remember when Aunt Velma gave me several rose bushes to plant in our new yard after we bought our first new house in Chico, CA. Last time we drove by that house the roses were still there.
