Most of us in New England have not had to worry about watering our lawns during the month of May, with all the rain our sprinkler systems have had an extended holiday. But the rain will not last forever and when the dry days of summer come along we will be firing up our water delivery systems so as to not lose our lawns and gardens.
Have you thought of integrating satellites to control when your sprinklers turn on and how much water they deliver. You read that right. “satellites”. More and more satellites are being used to make our lives easier and in the case of water lawns and gardens satellites can save on the amount of water used and tell you sprinklers when and where to turn on. I’m sure someone will create an iPhone or Droid app soon so you can communicate with your sprinkler system when you are halfway around the world.
I ran across an interesting group while surfing on the web. The group is called the Quiet Garden Movement. This movement was started by Quaker members in England to build more spaces affording people space to reflect, relax and just chill out. I think it is a great idea and one I hope will spread to more groups and individuals as a way to promote time for quiet reflection.
