Blog prompt: Today is Earth Day. Do you do anything to help conserve energy? Share some tips that you do.
Here in Florida, we have to conserve water.Â It’s our number one priority at our house.Â We just had a lot of sprinklers changed over to the ones really close to the ground so that we will stop watering air!!Â This will also make sure my plants are watered at the base of the plant and at the roots where they need it the most.
I even pour the dogs left over water in his bowl in my plants every morning.Â I never paid for water til I moved to Florida and its been an eye opening experience for sure.
The next thing I want to do is get one of those rain barrels to put in the back of the house where the rain can be caught from the down spout.Â I can use all that rain water to fill up my watering can for my pots.Â I just wish they weren’t so expensive.

I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
