Inspiration Thursday: Thinking about Rain Barrels

Back on December 1, 2015 I ordered a Palm Rain Barrel. It was right after Black Friday and on sale for a whopping $49.30. I guess they waited out all the "this is taking too long" cancellers because our barrel should arrive on Tuesday! Since its been so long since we ordered I was googling around for thought fodder:

A lot of people like using fancy rain chains to feed their barrels.

These chains are starting to show up at Marshalls and TJ Maxx but I am not sure they will catch on. Who wants to change tried and true gutters for fancy and tinkly?

I'd forgotten its a good idea to elevate barrels for gravity and to keep the ground dry.

I haven't decided on which gutter to attach the barrel to. The most accessible ones are very short and may not collect as much water as I want.

I like these little round bricks since our barrel will be round.
