A post from two years ago, the sentiment still holds true.
It’s Mother’s Day here in the UK and for all of those who aren’t visiting, sending cards or going to lunch we still remember you no matter how many years have passed.
And in my case I’m still using the little orange watering can I bought you all those years ago.

Promenade Plantings

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.
