Yesterday, The temperatures were in the high 90's. We have had any meaningful rain since our big storms at the beginning of the month. My wife had an idea. She suggested that we fill a garbage can lid with water so the birds & squirrels could get a drink. The Girl wanted to help.
I had her carry the lid out front and gave her the hose to hold while I went to turn the water on. I purposely made sure the water wasn't turned on very high. It took a while, but we got the lid filled.
Once the lid was filled, we watered all the flowers out front and filled all the bird feeders. When I came back out front after turning the water off, The Girl was standing in the water in the lid.
