Shower power

go! - - Letters Upfront -

It’s bor­ing to shower in­doors, with your only view be­ing the toi­let and basin. As a keen gar­dener, I thought of build­ing an out­door shower. I used a wine bar­rel for the basin, with my col­lec­tion of rocks from trav­els in­serted on top. I have a gas geyser for hot wa­ter. I col­lect the cold wa­ter in a Sedg­wick’s ket­tle for my plants. Now I can watch my gar­den grow, and lis­ten to the sounds of birds. At night I shower watch­ing the stars and moon.
