Rain is a rare thing in the desert. It's been raining for 4 days now, and that must be some kind of record. I am ready to be done, as it is not likely I will go for a walk until it stops.

what a fascinating post and some very clever and creative designs and alternative uses for gutters. Loved your photos. I'm really ready for the sun.

Great post! I've never seen rain gutters like those-they're really special! And I had no idea there were other uses for rain gutters.

Cool! I bet that huge drainiage feature near your house is FULL of water these days. Stay dry.

I love those decorative rain gutters - and the planter boxes too!

Thanks for sharing!
