At Least Someone Is Putting The Watering Can To Use

One day I’m going to have to install a soaker/sprinkler system in the flower bed in the front yard. The rose bushes, and the huge non-descript one that Nduku dislikes, sit under the awning. It’s bad enough that they don’t get much light, but when it rains, they get virtually none of that as well. So, I got a watering can, but found out within three minutes that I prefer using the water hose. Najwa, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to mind.

On the porch are some potted plants. We’re supposed to put them out in the sun, water them more often, or at least respond faster when they start to wilt. But they’re dying, if not dead, but easily replaceable for another $5 a plant. Najwa, though, thinks they just need a little more water.
