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.

Perfect now as a lawn decoration!ReplyDelete
It has found its sweet spot in the back yard, for sure.Delete
A family treasure indeed! The stories it could tell I bet!ReplyDelete
Willa the Wheelbarrow Tells Almost All. Hmmm.Delete
its certainly got an abundance in the rust departmentReplyDelete
Willa the Wheelbarrow's dress of rust. I'm liking the sound of that.Delete
Love the pic! It seems to have an autumn feel and if you place a poinsettia in front, it could be a Christmas cardReplyDelete
You're right! That would be a cool photo. Where's a poinsettia when I want one?Delete
Isn't that sweet? I love family treasures!ReplyDelete
I'll take Willa the Wheelbarrow over a diamond ring any day. :-)Delete
A golden sight! Lovely shot.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Lady Fi!Delete
...get a can of WD40 and it should go another 54 years.ReplyDelete
There's a thought. A good one, too. I even know where a can is.Delete
It could become another planter box. :DReplyDelete
I've thought of that, but I really like its rusty inside.Delete
Thanks for stopping by Travelnwrite today! And your photo brought back memories of my childhood wheelbarrow - I do wish we'd have kept it!ReplyDelete
At least you have wonderful memories.Delete
