  1. I love this! I’d like to invite you to post it on Masterpiece Monday at Boogieboard Cottage. The link will be up all week, I hope you can join in. Have a nice week, Mary :O)

  2. Oh, what a great idea!! We take something close to that along with us when we go camping up North….but it’s just a water filled bag that you let warm in the sunshine and put it up high on a branch and let the nozzle drip down. I would love to have something like that at my home too….it would come in handy after working so hard in the garden. I would love it if you would link this up to my Marvelous Mess party!! Every week I pick one project to feature on my sidebar!! Here is the link: http://marvelouslymessy.blogspot.com/2011/05/marvelous-mess-13-and-features.html

  3. We had an otdoor shower when we lived in a huge house in the garden, this is when our daughters were growing up, in the 80′s and 90′s and it used to be so much fun!
