We have a salt lake directly behind us. When it rains it looks like a nice lake with water, the rest of the time it is bone dry.
Thyme and Oregano, these are mainly watered with dish water.
I do not own a dishwasher, so this is how I wash my dishes. First, I run the hot tap into the bucket pictured, this is used for rinsing. (Our hot water is solar and takes a while to get hot when running the tap). When the water starts to warm I then run this into the other square container to which an earth friendly detergent has been added. As you can see I don't use very much water, depending on the amount of dishes of course, if there is only a few I use very little. I wash dishes at lunch time and after tea (dinner). I used about six litres of water all up this time around. When this cools down I put it onto the herb garden.
Neighbours house with wind generator, situated across the road from us.
I couldn't help but capture this evening shadow coming through my laundry window yesterday on sundown.
Have a blessed Sunday.

There has been a lot of cackling noises coming from the chook house of late. The reason being is pictured above. Our new hens have started laying, so there are plenty of eggs at the moment. I have included a larger egg that belongs to the old girls and the smaller ones are from the younger girls.
