A cheerful lavender cover shows a watering can spouting whimsical flowers.
Open the card to pop up a lilac watering can resting on a bed of garden flowers.
Our watering can holds a colorful freshly picked spring bouquet: a snapdragon, yellow tulips and a pansy. Today the watering can will come indoors and display the fresh-cut flowers.
Watering by hand may be old-fashioned, but it draws you closer to your garden. When you step close enough to a plant to water it with a can, you’re also close enough to inspect its health, inhale its aroma, feel its texture, and appreciate its beauty. Providing plants with personal watering attention quenches a certain thirst in the gardener as well.
Watering cans were originally known as watering pots and in recent times the mother of all gardeners, Martha Stewart, referred to them as the watering-can shower; she uses them to wash off her feet after spending time in the garden.
A beautiful whimsical card from a gardener or to give a gardener, for a birthday, for Spring, for memories, for fragrance, for Nature lovers. A thank you gift to a caretaker. Give to a graduate or a growing child, a grandmother, a grandchild.
Life began in the garden.
In the Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. ~Margaret Atwood
Life is a garden, dig in.
Gardening is an exercise in optimism.
I think of myself as the little girl Renoir painted with the watering can. I loved the garden colors. ~Alexandra Stoddard
Laziness is the habit of resting before you get tired.
Grown with love.
A weed is but an unloved flower.
Gardeners know all the dirt.
Weeds are flowers too once you get to know them.
She breathes in dirt and exhales flowers.
Trespassers will be composted.
Gardening is cheaper than therapy, AND you get tomatoes.
Mary, Mary, quite contrary, How does your garden grow? With silver bells, and cockel shells, And pretty maids all in a row.
