Sadly, D did not fall on Thursday–for Ol’ Wally’s Thirsty Thursday column–but I gratefully took his advice to post this fabulous D entry for the letter.
This type of drainage ditch always gets our votes! It is not concrete, it’s permeable! Permeable is oh-so superior because it allows the water to seep into the soil instead of shooting it off somewhere else. That ‘somewhere else’ usually has too much water and leaves the original spot with too little. Also, all those rocks are a huge benefit. They provide more surfaces to hit so a stream is forced to slow and spread and seep.
