58/366 [Water storage]

Water storage

Ten long years of drought in this state has taken its toll on my garden. Four years ago we could still use our irrigation system but I felt guilty using a scarce resource to fill our pool. So we went for a tank. Initially, we thought we’d only need a five thousand litre capacity but at the last minute doubled it to ten. Although we have lost some of the more delicate garden plants like birches and fuschias, there are many others that owe their life to this short, fat, hard-to-miss feature of our garden.
