Giant Water Can

A giant working water can. It's a large welded metal sculpture on the side of the road at "Holly, Woods, and Vine" on Richmond Hwy. The most interesting thing is that it actually works! Water flows from it in warm weather. Not a lot of giant stuff in these parts, but this one's a pleaser.

Water Can.

Giant Watering Can

Giant working watering can is whimsical icon of a local medium-sized retail garden center, Holly, Woods, and Vines, visible from the road. And if the Giant Watering Can is not impressive enough, the garden center is also adorned with several neon-color palm trees!

Now that we see what the watering can looks like, it seems familiar -- not uncommon in front of other garden centers?

(Another) Giant Watering Can

There is another giant watering can just like the one in Staunton. It is a fountain, constantly watering a giant flower pot in a garden supply store.
