Water and Drip Irrigation: extras ;)

Please note the discreetly hidden dripper to freshen the bird bath.
Can you see the "mister" I fashioned for this bird bath?
Ah, there it is . . . I am so clever ;)
I planted these boxes with plants mom brought from her garden. The Japanese Blood Grass and Chameleon plant do spread on rhizomes so I like to keep then contained. I especially like the look in long rectangular boxes and beds like these. The boxes are along the fence on the west walkway from the front to the backyard. A drip line runs underground and individual drips provide water to each box, as well as potted plants on the deck above. Each line has a shut off.
