The wisteria is loaded on the pergola. Every afternoon, the bumble bees are bouncing around loaded with pollen. The spent petals float to the ground littering the pavement with sweet smelling purple confetti. Ajax, our English Mastiff, has many water bowls. That's because they get very slobbery. In an effort to conserve precious water, his bowls are dumped regularly onto his lawn or various flower beds and baskets. The wisteria benefits from Ajax's drool (gross). Nonetheless, his drool helps. This year especially we all need to be very creative in conserving water. Thanks Ajax.
