A Photo a Week Challenge: Water

I stumbled across a photo challenge in the blog-o-sphere.  The instructions this week:  “In a new post created for this challenge, share a photo or two that features water of any kind.”

The intent, I think, of the challenge is to take new photos.  But I immediately thought of the photo above.  Taken more than six years ago, it’s water from a well at the Neumann Ranch in eastern Montana.  The pump on the well is now run with electricity, but once upon a time it was an old fashioned windmill.

The water runs through a pipe and then a hose to fill a stock tank from which the garden is irrigated.

While waiting for the water to flow through the rows of the garden, you might use the watering can to hurry things along.

The best part:  digging a few carrots, washing them off at the well where the water is clean, and enjoying the treat of really fresh produce.
