While “giving voice to what lives in a garden … “, is my “aim” in my cyberspace venues on Facebook, Pinterest, flickr, blogger, and here on tumblr, as well as in most of the Virtual Stories (garden themed movies) in my Vimeo Library, and my recently launched Campaign on indiegogo; this morning I’m sharing a photograph of a non-living garden object in my urban (NYC) garden — my fairly new watering can — as it is what helps the 80++ things which grow in my garden to thrive!
This particular watering can is interesting, as it is made from a recycled gasoline can, and any time objects can be recycled and given a new purpose in life, I am appreciative.
My former watering can was leaking all over the place, and since I carry a watering can from my kitchen sink (story @ http://bit.ly/NQzpip) out into my terrace garden, my wood floors were taking a beating!
Still, I was hesitant to replace my metal watering can as long as it still functioned, but when I found this “re-purposed” can, I retired my former watering can to a role of decoration, and I will hopefully be using this new one for a long time.
My “new” watering can is not the only re-purposed object in my urban garden; as you may recall, I “turned the tables in my garden decor,” by re-reusing a plant stand! story @ http://bit.ly/NQzJ0D
What items have you re-purposed/recycled for your garden, dear reader?
