Watering Can and Morning Glories Weathervane

Watering Can and Nasturtiums Weather Vane


Our Watering Can Weather Vane with Morning Glory or Nasturtiums is an elaboration on our Watering Can with Flowers Weather Vane. We can make a variation on this complex design based on your favorite flower. A nice option is the optional addition of some gold and/or palladium leafing to accent the copper weathervane. The petals on the nasturtiums and morning glories are enhanced nicely in this way. Another option is to perch a butterfly or hummingbird on top of the watering can.

You might enjoy reading our blog post to learn more about how we customized this design to include Nasturtiums, our customer’s favorite flowers.

Also popular is attaching the flowers to the top of the directional letters instead of placing them on the horizontal tube. As a similar variation, we have often thought it would also be nice to display symbols for the four seasons on top of each directional letter to represent the cyclical nature of the gardening year. Call us to discuss pricing for these options.

We have made many variations on this theme and we never tire of hearing a new approach. One fun variation was the Watering Can with a Topiary plant. A husband gave it as a surprise birthday present to his wife, whose passion is topiary sculpture.

Not surprisingly, popular places to display this weathervane are in a garden setting, on top of a wishing well, a back fence visible from the house, a gazebo, or a greenhouse. We have also created several versions for display on top of garden center structures.

Other garden-themed weathervanes are an Angel with a wheelbarrow full of clouds, a Gardening Angel holding a Watering Can, a Rabbit and Carrot, or even a Snail Weather Vane!

And for some fun historical data: the term ‘Watering can’, first appeared in 1692, in the diary of the keen cottage gardener, Lord Timothy Simon 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.
