The Rain Pig

I was headed outside to take some photographs, but the sun has disappeared behind dreary, blue grey clouds. I then spotted the Rain Pig in the corner of the sun room, hanging out by the rosemary. She did a great job late summer and fall.

The Rain Pig's original purpose was to be a watering can. Our friend who gave us the Rain Pig, gave it to us for a different reason.

Several years ago we were in the grips of a drought. R.L., who lives 50+ miles to the west of us, felt we were "hogging" what precious little rain was finding its way to the eastern Plains of Colorado. Thus we became the proud owners of the little Rain Pig. The little metal pig hangs out in the sun room as I do allow her to live in the house.
