Monarch Rain Chains

 

In the hottest weeks of the year, we finally have frequent showers to combat the heat and give my flowers some much needed attention.

On days where rain is sparse and the constant need to run to my hose is too much, I needed something that could collect rainwater for later use.  So, I began researching and lo and behold, I have found a functional and decorative way to do so--a rain chain.

Rain chains come in a plethora of sizes and vary in material, so I opted for a pure-copper rain chain with a medium-sized water basin from Monarch Rain Chains.  

The copper color complements the exterior of my home perfectly and the hammered cups had just enough subtle detail. 

It collects enough water to hold a bit of downpour, which is more than enough for me to tend to all my flowers and my small vegetable garden. 

With this rain chain, I have a sophisticated way of conserving water and my energy. 

Having this addition to the exterior of my home adds both decoration and functionality that works well.  It has saved me the infinite amount of trips to and from the hose that made gardening such a chore. 

Monarch Rain Chains offers so many styles that fit anyone's tastes from aluminum rain chains to very large cup styles with ornate decorations.

  10. Hi Brandi!
    I've been wanting to dip into getting myself some rainchains forever!!! I've even thought about making one or two. Who am I kidding, lol...I'd have a better chance of just buying a few:)

    The ones you have chosen look really cool. We've been getting so much rain here in PA, I'm sure they would work out GREAT!

    Thank you so much for sharing, Brandi. I've bookmarked the site and will check it out when time allows.

    Unfortunately, I am not back to blogging yet. Soon I hope:) Take care Brandi and enjoy that gardening!!!

  13. I love it! But, it wouldn't get used in our desert area. If we are lucky we get maybe a half a dozen rains a year and that is a damp year and in the winter :) I do think it is pretty and I'll just bet that it makes a lovely sound when the rain goes through it.

  17. I love how pretty it is and it's just a bonus that it's functional too! The hammered cups are so pretty! I bet it's convenient for watering your pretty plants. I know I sometimes make countless trips to the kitchen faucet and back to water my patio plants. :)

  24. Brandi,
    I've never heard of these rain chains, how cool. Now, I only wish we had some rain - we really need the rain here in California. I love the copper look on your rain chain, and your flowers look so pretty. That rain sure made them look nice. :~)
