A small plastic orange watering can with a long spout – it has to be one of my most treasured possessions.
I bought it for my mum as a Mothering Sunday present back in the days when things cost 2 /6.
The design is perfect, small enough to handle, the long spout reaches into the pots, perfect for watering house plants and precious seedlings, oh and it’s orange – a real late 60’s/70’s colour!
40 years on, and it’s still going strong. And with Mother’s day next weekend, I can’t help but remember and praise this little watering can – and a way of me saying hello to my mum every time I use it.
