Last March, I posted a "personal ad" for a watering can.
After some advice from fellow gardeners and much searching online and on foot, I found the watering can I wanted. I paused at the price.
I decided I could hold out until there was a sale or something. There was never a sale or anything.
Well, with some Christmas cash, I bought the watering can.
It is a Haws Galvanized Slimcan. The two gallon size.
As I wrote last year, "It must have a screw off sprinkler head. The carrying handle needs to be inline with the spout and pouring handle. Plus, I want the fill opening to be on top at back." That is exactly what I got. The "perfect galvanized watering can."
You can put different brass heads on the spout depending on what you want. I chose basic round. They don't screw on. They slide on. It is removable which is what I really wanted.
It arrived one late afternoon. I immediately filled the watering can with water. I watered crocus sprouting by the patio stepping stones even though it was only 38 degrees Fahrenheit.
I see a great future for us.
