100 words : Drought

What, already? It’s barely April.
But yes. The winter was so agreably dry and warm, hardly a winter at all (excepting those 20 days that froze my radiator, still unrepaired). Any particular day without rain is a nice day. But string them together and what happens?
Payback time.
The bucket is back in the bathroom, no down-the-drain while heating the shower. One in the kitchen as well. The garden is thirsty.
My effort is miniscule, but that’s no reason not to do it. It’s the little bits together that make a difference. Either way. Be on the plus side!

the garden's not the only thing that's thirsty. This made me feel parched. Even something about the word 'drought' itself...
