We have not had a decent rainfall, since November and the water tank is down to half full.
Already this season we have had one delivery of water and when I put in another order last week, was told the waiting list stands at 23 days ... when they will next be able to deliver to our place.
So until then we shall be taking brisk showers and conserving our water, even more so than we already do.
The hot dry spell may mean a very good season for the vineyards, but the garden is really suffering and everything seems to be dying. So much for having red juicy tomatoes off the vine, which we were looking forward to.

Living on an Island, teaches us a lot about running a resilient home.
Each home has to maintain its own water supply, collecting rainwater which runs off the roof into the guttering, then down a pipe which connects to the water tank.
Water is precious and makes you really appreciate it.
Before I go, would like to share a generous giveaway that Mea is having over at her blog, Mayflower, so go over and visit her.
I hope you are enjoying a fabulous weekend
