Wheelbarrow Shadows


Many gardens on the Mornington Peninsula present displays of flowers in various recycled objects.
This old wheelbarrow with a flat tyre is an example of just one.

I would definitely like an old wheelbarrow (even with the flat tyre)filled with gorgeous flowers for my garden, pretty as a picture Gemma. What a lovely Sunday morning image.

I like that the tire is flat...so no one can wheel away this barrow of beauty. :)

I must say like Rambling: nice to visit you when it is snowing here!
Thank you!

I've done that! My whellbarrow isn't such a vintage one though and I've got a native growing in it that will attract the honeyeaters.

That wheelbarrow's not going anywhere soon with its "pancake" tire!

Lovely shot, Gemma. Good to recycle old wheelbarrows in this way.

That's a beauty, I can't wait till summer.

We had wheelbarrows all our life, but never used for this purpose. This looks very pretty and a great idea.

Nice!

Our Roma Street Parklands have one similar but more antique, along with annuals weeping out of watering cans and barrels. It's such a cool concept.
