An Heirloom Wheelbarrow


This rusty green wheelbarrow has been in the family for at least 54 years. It was one of the first garden equipment the Daddy bought for our new home way back when. We have used it to make cement, to carry bales of hay, and to move dirt, wood, and whatever from one side of the house to the other.

Today it sings a loud, squeeky-squeek when rolled so we prefer to use a hand truck.

I love its rustiness.

  4. Love the pic! It seems to have an autumn feel and if you place a poinsettia in front, it could be a Christmas card

    1. You're right! That would be a cool photo. Where's a poinsettia when I want one?
