Hose. Horta, Portuguese for a vegetable garden or a small farm.
This photo shows onions being watered with the help of a large hose, simulating rain. It was late in the afternoon and I couldn’t resist the way the light illuminating the young and wet onion leaves from behind was giving them a lovely translucent green appearance. This is an old photo, from 2013, back then my grandmother was still alive (this is on her yard) and my mother was still healthy (she was the one holding the hose here). I miss those times.

I love the density of the water, a perfect curtain of wet, and the plants look joyous.

Sidelight, glancing bright, you bring the glow that I like. (apologies to Joni Mitchell)
Fine artificial rain and beautiful glowing leaves.

It’s a delightful picture. Downright magical.
This is beautiful, and so very fresh. It smells like the damp earth of spring, just dig your fingers right in.
Thank you all! Water can be so much fun to photograph.
And yes, rq, I agree with you on the earth. :)
I love the light in this picture. It’s hard to make a wet photo look this warm.
