Most of the big cities in the Eastern Cape have been put again under water restrictions from the side of the municipalities. It has not rained in our region since weeks, the water level in the dams has dropped to a critical point and when you leave the coast to drive inland the grass and vegetation is dry and of a yellowish color. The farmers are nervous and the " raintalk" is in everybody's mouth. 
The rates for water have gone up dramatically and my neighbour has just installed a huge plastic reservoir in his garden under his roof to catch rain water.

It is easy to understand the old desert saying " Water is  life " when you look at the land now. Water is life and costly.

Natures harvests and captures water wherever and whenever it can. Time again to think about the environment.
