Bumblbee...lol...in my language it means "bum, idiot". :)
Photo is beautiful and it is nice to imagine that somewhere there is sun, warm water, bumblbees and bees, and flowers in bloom...

Spring came very early this year, but we are all a little concerned by the small amount of rain.

Why concerned?

There is nothing worse than day on/day off with the water. When it is on, it is cloudy. You have to stock water just to flush the toilet or cook and wash dishes. I have gone through it once here, but when I lived in Okinawa, Japan it happened every year until the first typhoon hit. You know that those living in the UK have been told to expect a hose ban, but at least they will get water in the house.

So you wash dishes with rain water? There is no central water system on the island?

The rain water becomes the central water system. We have no rivers or snow melt, only rain, and during a normal year it doesn't in August.
