An Eden Mailbox

An unusual mailbox in Dromana.
It features 2 elephants in the form of a crest.
And the word Eden appears beneath them.

I can't help but wonder why some of the mail is on the ground and not in the box. :-)

I wish we had unusual mailboxes here. Most are boring! This one is very nice.

A very unusual, but interesting mail box -- like EGs, ours are just boring! Another great shadow shot for the day! The mail on the ground is interesting!


Ralph said...

I agree with EG, the basic mailboxes are simple in shape and stamped in steel. The function of a mailbox is not in question, but here, unique and artistic touches make the ordinary a bit more stylish. I wonder, too, why some of the mail is on the ground...

I love your beautiful new header, I just want to dive right in, it's been sweltering here for a couple of weeks, I hate to go outside, the humidity is so miserable, the water just pours off of you...we've gone from lots of rain to very drought-like conditions, then this heat, the gardens are not doing well. The heat has weakened the plants and the bugs are taking over. I'm going to venture out into the sauna tomorrow and see what will be salvaged...crazy weather this year, but at least it's not snowing!!! I love Sundays, I don't have to work anywhere, so I can be out in the thick of it first light when there's no traffic on the 4-lane. I'm trying to get my chickens to wander around to the garden side of the house where there's lots of juicy grasshoppers for the taking...can one have too much fun?

Glad to hear you are doing better, boy does a day of fishing sound good, but our waters are so polluted, you shouldn't really eat them...but boy do I love to fish...and eat fish, YUMMM!!! The river has again come up to flood stage, crazy storms to the north of us with 13 inch rainfalls, what next!

Take care dear friend, don't work too hard(yeah right)...and not to worry about the comments, there's been times I don't have time to write to anyone, cause I'm out the door at sun up...I know where to find you sista!

Lots of warm(hot n muggy)hugs from Iowa, glad you got some warm sunshine!

Here in the USA mailboxes are somewhat standardized. If the one you posted was on a rural motor route, there is no way a rural carrier would deliver the mail. Rules and regulations. This one is unique though, and my Grand daughter would love the elephants!

I love the uniqueness of this post box. It is so much more interesting and attractive than our dull old US boxes. Am hoping there is not a hole in the bottom causing the mail to fall on the ground...doubt that, but it is possibility.Genie

Unique it is. Hope nothing too important fell out.

Very nice mail box and your photo, too.

An odd, but lovely mailbox. I live in a rural area and have to just go with something sturdy. Otherwise vandals (usually bored teens) might mess with it.
