1st Day of S*P*R*I*N*G - Think ViNtaGe GARDEN!*!*!

Here in the Midwest we STILL have a good amount of "frozen snow" on the ground with temperatures in the teens - OMG!*!*!  Until I have my "first sighting" of an outdoor garden hose ~ I'll cherish my ViNtaGe Garden Collectibles even more ~ with faith & hope that Spring is indeed around the corner...

In Our GaRaGe!*!*!
Galvanized Plumbing Poles suspend Numerous Time~Worn ViNtaGe Watering Cans... AND the Top Self of a FaB Old Cupboard displays a part of my ViNtaGe Garden Collectibles...



MORE Watering Cans
Stacked on Shelving in-the-GaRaGe...
The majority of my ViNtaGe Watering Cans are just for display...  What draws me to these Old Watering Cans is their NATURAL "Time-Worn" PaTina, Form, & "Rose" Spray Head...




**Rare**
Very early Seed Packets with contents...

 GaRaGe Ceiling!*!*!
Time-Worn ViNtaGe Watering Cans...
I started my Collection in the early *1980's* 
when I lived in Nevada of all places!*!*!
LAST YEAR ~ I  "weeded-out" a few of them from my collection, -they SOLD right away...

  3. All those vintage watering cans make me happy. Your hollyhock seeds reminded me that I saved some seeds last year from my hollyhocks to plant this year. I cut grass/weeds yesterday when it was warm and now it is cold again! xo, olive
