As a year round, die-hard gardener, I can’t resist a vintage copper watering can. Any shape. Any size. I am not shy about owning more than one.

Having an assortment allows me the ability to choose the right can for the right job. If I had to play favorites, my indoor go-to can, has a wonderful long narrow spout, which makes it easy to control.  For quick outdoor jobs, when I don’t want to drag out the garden hose, (or let’s be honest, have Murph drag out the hose . . .) I reach for a number with a fitted rose that can hold a large capacity of water.

Displayed in a group, and located where they’re kept at the ready, I love their decorative charm and functionality.

Happy collecting!

Love, Nora

    I’m learning that several watering cans are essential for the job!

    Thanks for sharing!
    How do you use these in off seasons?
    How do you store them when not in use?

      Hi Nan! Actually, I have this collection out year round! In the winter, I move them to the powder room, just a few feet away from their present home, and line them up on the low and deep window sill in there. The powder room’s sink is their filling station, where they’re right there at hand!
      Love them!!

      Thanks very much Nan! Have a great day. Love, Nora

      Hi Nan! In the spring & summer they come out from the powder room where they live during the fall & winter when they’re in use for watering indoor plants. The powder room is where I fill them up! Take care, Love, Nora

    Fabulous collection Nora. I Could certainly use another for the back garden. I have one large one and spill half of it journeying from one pot is to the next . Maybe I should be using the rose – that is a term I was not familiar with.
