Here are two charming ways to display collections of vintage watering cans. The first is from Sabrina and Freeland Tanner’s garden in Napa, California. The second was taken in a garden in central Virginia.

    That is really cool! I especially like the watering cans on the steps. What a neat way to display a collection!

    I love it, I asked yesterday about what to do for my bare fence and I think this is a great idea. I love the different sizes as well. Now I have to go hit the garage sales.
