X as in ...

We're still trying to keep up with the "A to Z Blog Challenge"!

Buddies, we had to hit the dictionary for this one, BOL!

It means the "environmental design of residential and park land using various methods for minimizing the need for water use".
Which, in this crazy world, seems like it's a very important thing to know. Droughts have become more severe and even more prevalent. Here at Chez Prudence, we make sure that we don't waste water, as it really is a precious resource that sometimes can be taken for granted.
  Mom's hoping to build a "rain barrel" this summer, to help keep the garden watered. We'll be sure to let you know how it turns out! 


  1. Rain barrel is on our list of things to get this summer. Our Lady knows she can't build one (it will be a leaky barrel). Happy saving water!

  2. Good job Pru. That is a hard word. We're still trying to figure out how to say it too. he he My sisfur has a rain barrell, and they really like it.

  3. We think a rain barrel is a great idea Prudence. We'd never heard of that word before. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly
