Wouldn’t this be a lovely way to collect rain? I think it’s charming.
It is interesting in any season.
Now we could only wish for a copper gutter.
Let’s put this on my Copper Top Cottage list of must haves!
These were taken on my recent trip to Blowing Rock, NC. I fell in love with the barrels. Several buildings in town have them. Details like this are one reason I come for inspiration. I was here for another reason but who could resist a nice photogenic rain barrel posing for the camera. With her hair done in braids, she was irresistible.
Here she is posing beside our grand old flag and Uncle Sam.
I shall be on the phone tomorrow calling several wineries in the area to see about availability. I just need one. How about you? Looks like all we need is a gutter, a good heavy chain, and the barrel.
*** Added to say that I have just been to the blog Green Garden Design where Alice has done a beautiful job talking about the rain chain. She has some pictures over there of several rain chains. She is new to blotanical . Take a look:
