Strange Pipe

I haven't done very well at growing brassicas but the flowers are looking nice.
We discovered a hosepipe round the back of the patch. It seemed very strange that it should be there if there was no purpose to it. After being envious at other peoples irrigation systems and close proximity to water we had accepted that ours was a little further to walk but we could live with it. We followed the pipe around the patch where it disapeared into the bushes. We walked round the perimeter of the hedge where the hosepipe seemed to appear and dissapear as we walked along. Where the hedge stops for the path and gate the pipe dissapeared under the ground and popped out from the other side and then dissapeared back into the hedge again.

It went all the way down here inside the hedge and then dissapeared under the grass to reappear at the water tap.

This is the journey back after the gate where it goes all the way down here and takes a right at the bottom past next doors plot and onto ours.
We stuck a connector on and turned on the tap to see what happened and were rather chuffed to see that we had water on tap! No more long trudges back in the heat of summer with heavy watering cans when the water butt has run out. Fantastic!
