It's been really hot lately, and I've been wanting to find and purchase a simple outdoor shower that would hook up to a hose and stick into or sit on the lawn. At the house we visited in Italy in June they had one, and we used it all day long. It's the perfect way to cool down when it's hot and you can put them anywhere, from lawn to roof to beach to deck. Here's my digging for the day. I got carried away and did hours of trawling. Enjoy!
The Providence Shower: This is the pic that inspired me. Unfortunately, it's from Restoration Hardware, and they are out of stock right now. Perhaps next summer....?

>> Minimalist Outdoor Shower From Atelier Tradewinds: "The acacia wood frame is set on a couple of nylon gliders so that the shower can easily be moved. The shower tube itself is made of galvanized steel; a simple tap attached to the tube regulates the water pressure."
