Day 20: Walking Through Sprinklers!

It’s Day 20 of the Papa’s Walk Challenge!

One of the great things about early morning walks are Sprinklers!

People water their lawns and gardens in the early morning.  I love to run my hands through their sprinkler systems as I walk by – so cool and refreshing!

That made me wonder about the reasoning behind watering in the early morning.  The University of Illinois offers “Home Hort Hints” and it says, “The best time of day to water is early morning before the temperatures begin to rise. This gives the plants a good supply of water to face the heat of the day. Early morning also tends to be a time of lower winds and thus reduced evaporation. It is important to water early enough so that the leaves have time to dry before nightfall to avoid development of fungal diseases.”  To learn more click the link to visit the website.
