|My old watering can|
Had this watering can forty years. it was old when I found it.
Still works like it was new.
Does a touch up for dry plants.
Lilac bush still surviving. Didn’t think it could do that.
Other two dried to crackling. Nearly broke my heart.
This geranium has had a long run, and made it. Nearly dead when we got here.
Food and water. Food and water. All it needed.
Sneaky things are weeds. There, trying to hide like it’s one of geraniums.
Who’d it think it could fool?
Grabbed it, pulled, gave a little, then broke off above the ground.
Silly weed. Don’t it know a weed-killing old woman sees it?
Gotta pull a weed out until white and straggling hair roots see light.
Then weed’s over and done with.
|I will get you. No doubt about it.|
