My old faithful plastic watering can cracked over winter. I have a metal one, but the rose is rusted on, so it only sprinkles gently. Sometimes you need a good gush of water when you're planting or watering pots, so off I went to Fred Meyer for a new one. But of course I had to look around the garden center while I was there.
Here's how Fred Meyer does spring:
It was total color overload.
The cheap plastic watering cans were all clipped to a display and I couldn't get one loose. So I didn't buy a thing from the Fred Meyer garden department (as tempting as those bright green euphorbias were.)
I want some torulosa junipers in my garden, so I went looking for them in the conifer area. They didn't have any ("Hollywood" junipers are a little declasse for PN, I guess) but they did have this beautiful low variety, Juniperus horizontalis "Lime Glow".
