Let's Go Out and Play in the Sprinkler!



Thank you Charlie Thigpen ( Garden Gallery at the Pepper Place) for this wonderful reminder of my childhood. I danced and pranced in many sprinklers. Good memories!

You mean you don;t dance and prance around the sprinkler anymore?

V, this image and your words bring back wonderful sound impressions...the sound of the water, the sound of feet slapping in wet grass, the sound of slippery wet little bodies wiggling joyfully in the summer sun, the sound of children squealing and giggling with delight...thank you, thank you!

I do view your blogs,just haven't got round to commenting on your beautiful images.
These childhood memories are so precious........we used hose pipes and got just as wet no doubt!

Best wishes,
Ruby

Rob, Well hardly ever! HA

Brattcat, and thank you for the wondrous words!

Ruby, I'm laughing because down south we called them hose pipes as well!

Oh yes! A very cool reminder of July afternoons under the sprinkler.

Better get the WD 40 out first. We had a city playground in the neighborhood with sprinklers - no one had a yard to set these up in.

Bob,
Quelle dommage. The asphalt jungle, n'est-ce pas??
