I like old things. So, when I spotted an old, galvanized watering can at an antique shop – I knew it had to be in my garden.
However, I wasn’t going to use it for watering my plants…
I decided that it would make a unique container for annual flowers.
My old watering can made the perfect container, once I made a few holes on the bottom for drainage. It sits in the middle of one of my vegetable gardens where I can view it from my kitchen window. (You can see radishes, carrots, broccoli and nasturtiums surrounding my newest planter. I think vegetable gardens should look attractive, so I always have some flowers growing nearby).
Violas, Alyssum and Lobelia are just a few of my favorite cool-season annuals.
