Welcome Visitors

At six o'clock this morning, I looked out the kitchen window, and saw this:
He had a sniff at the red-hot poker plants (in the dark soil), but didn't try eating one. Then he turned and hopped away down to the grass beside the road.

At eight o'clock, the plumber arrived. He thinks the leak was caused by soil movement.
The large pipe at the top takes water to the tank. The narrow pipe takes water to the house, and that was the one with a split in it.

Here's how it looked when I got home tonight:
 I celebrated by drinking several large glasses of water, then having a shower. What luxury!


  1. Great news!! Glad you guys have running water again. Cool visitor - glad you got the pic.

  2. Thank goodness you have running water again in the house. Christmas is looking merrier.

  3. Let's hope it doesn't happen again, you need to keep your soil under control. Only showering when it rains is not an appealing alternative to tanks of water.
