The inspiration for this fun poem was through the following linked blog posts :)





Most of the graphics were downloaded from *The Graphics Fairy*. I converted the graphics into Photoshop brushes and "stamped" them to illustrate the poem.

If these images are too large, could you let me know and I will make them smaller.  Thanks :)

PS


Wiki history ~
The term "watering can" first appeared in 1692, in the diary of keen cottage gardener Lord Timothy George of Cornwall. Before then, it was known as a "watering pot".
In 1885 the "Haws" watering can was patented by Michael Deas. He replaced the top mounted handle with a single round handle at the rear.

  1. Glo reading such a delightful post not only puts a smile on my face but really does make my day!
    I love little details like the paper boat at the bottom of page 3, and your footnote about watering cans.
    I shall mention, and link to, this poem in my post tomorrow.

  6. Thanks John :) I enjoyed trying out the brushes I made from the graphics. Yes, there are adventures everywhere ~ even in my own back yard, which I will eventually have to talk about. This adventure doesn't entail any critters, though ~ just work! You're welcome for adding your link ~ those flies were priceless!
