The great old jug!
Here is the great old A.P. Donaghho jug that I picked up yesterday! I was born in Parkersburg, WV and have been collecting A.P. Donaghho jugs for a while but this is the first one of this size and color that I have seen. I have some of the several A.P. Donaghho crocks and jugs that were found in my maternal grandfather's dairy barn (in Cairo, WV) after his death in the early 1970's; but none like this great old jug.
On another note, my native fringe tree (Chionanthus virginicus) is beginning to flower today and I will be posting pictures of it by late this afternoon. I will also be posting pictures of my spring/summer garden on my webpage at: http://www.picturetrail.com/winterberryfarm
