Watery Wednesday #114: Our Cascade

Water flowing down the ditch in front of our front yard wall. Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. November 17, 2010.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

This little cascade doesn’t seem like much, but it was a very welcome sight for us.  We’ve had a very dry summer here on the Plateau, but it finally started to rain Monday.  We never had a real hard downpour, but it did rain fairly steadily through Tuesday afternoon.  When I went out Tuesday morning I saw water coming down this little drainage ditch in front of the wall we built last year.

This was the first time since early Spring that we had water going down ‘our’ cascade.  That’s why the sight is so welcome to us.

    Well let’s hope the cascade doesn’t become a torrent and wash out the wall as it did the first year it was up. Remember??? MB

    Why George, you have actually made your own waterfall!! When I first saw this picture, I thought it was some strange waterfall with steppes in a park or something!
