Well, Ginnie...I suppose that is an apt description of this implement!


[grin]
Ginnie Hart: It seemed very happy-go-lucky to me, Ray. smile
Lovely colors you've brought out in this Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth.

Oh, you have been short of eyes in Bradford -on-Avon - the English people are a flowery nation or born gardeners.
Ginnie Hart: Being "short of eyes" everywhere in England would be an understatement, Philine!
Like Shane I like rusty things they always have history around them.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Scotia. It's like some of them have had many lives and keep on going. smile

Wonderful flower 'basket' love the way the wheels are made.
Nice shadows. That was a nice walk and we saw many beautiful things.
Ginnie Hart: I'll never forget it, MLMA. And I can remember exactly where this is, when you get to the top of the city and look out over it on the walk back down.

I wonder if these flowers were planted or just fell into this thing Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: It does make you wonder, Chris. I remember exactly where this was, at the top of the city looking over it as we started walking back down.
Very happy Ginnie... love the combination of the rust flowers and shadows....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. We have so much for which to be thankful and happy, don't we!

You little devil, Ginnie - where do you spot it all?
Ginnie Hart: I remember exactly where this was, Lisl, as we walked along the top of that beautiful city. Remember your cat not very far away? We had seen it just minutes before we passed this. smile
This is Tiffo's pram.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Maybe so, Bill. grin

I like very much this surprising wheelbarrow which is of use as basket to flowers and to the beautiful rust around its wheels
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Marie. It was a sweet little gift for that moment when I saw it.

Yippee it's...oh yes, Mondag. Still never mind, only another seven day to the next one. Lovely photograph Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: For some, Monday is the "worst" day of the week. I hate it for them....
Oh, one of my favourite places in the West Country. I went to Bath two weeks ago. wink
Ginnie Hart: Aha. So you do get around to that neck of the words, LC. Maybe one day we can meet up with you there or nearby?????

Oh dear... don't remind me smile I like the little cart very much with its load of flowers (or good they be weeds? No matter...)
Ginnie Hart: Not a happy day for many, Alan, but for those of us who are retired or have the day off (Astrid), it's another weekend day! Chin up. Your day is coming....!

This looks very robust - no wonder it has stood the test of time!
Ginnie Hart: I like to see such things put to good use...after their time, Mike. smile

A wonderful sunny Monday morning photo, Ginnie! Enjoy the day!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, HF. I like that! smile
A lovely rustic scene Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Rust being put to good use, Martin. smile
What a great way to recycle an old piece of garden equipment. The colours are beautiful.
Ginnie Hart: I loved seeing it, Pauline. Thanks.
I would be happy with this in my yard.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Mary. smile
Quite a beautiful and unusual display Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Something old and rustic put to good use, Richard. smile

Strange thing - I can't work out what it was before becoming a plant pot. Resting in a corner, watching time going by.
Ginnie Hart: Someone called it a wheelbarrow, Louis. It looks like a cart of some sort, whatever it is. Watching time and people pass by, for sure.
We are on the same wave length Ginnie! Nice one
Ginnie Hart: Yes we are, Ronky. smile Thanks.
This is a very nice find Ginnie, it makes a lovely planter. We're happy because Maureen's closest cousin and her husband are paying a surprise visit this evening as they pass by on their way home to Southern England, we haven't seen them for several years, Maureen and Jean will talk for hours if one will let them!!
Ginnie Hart: How wonderful for Maureen and Jean, Brian. Just let them talk! smile
Nice old planter smile
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Tom. Thanks.
Its been a beautiful sunny day in Bristol, except for a few black clouds a little while ago, but no rain, which we need. That little cart looks as if it started life as a garden lawn roller, but has since been turned into a little garden cart. Any other ideas anyone? Another lovely picture Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: A couple days ago, Suzanne, we had the rain of a month's equivalent with lots of flooding and sewer backups. The whole country had its work cut out for it. Too bad we couldn't have given some of it to you!

In the meantime, your guess is better than mine as to what the original use was for this planter. But it sure did catch my eye.
Interesting object, looks home made smile
Ginnie Hart: It certainly caught my eye, John.
That is so very cool. I want a planter like that.
Ginnie Hart: I bet you could go to a salvage yard and find something that'd work just like this, Michael. smile
ça fait longtemps que je ne suis pas venue te rendre visite où j'arrive en étant accueillie avec des fleurs...
Ginnie Hart: Greetings to you, with flowers, Angevine! Merci.
charming scene here Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. I thought so, too.
But it's now Tuesday. What do I do next? smile
Ginnie Hart: You can still smile...and be happy, Larry. smile
Gosh, Ginnie, that rain must have been a shock to many. We actually had the same thing in the South East, where rain filled an underground station to about 5 ft high and people were wading up to chest height. Lets hope it was just a one off.
Ginnie Hart: It appears to have been a one-off, Suzanne, thankfully. All's well now! (Sorry I missed this comment!)

Looks like a postcard.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Paule. I tried to leave a comment at your site but it said I needed to log in. What's that about? HELP.
Love, love, love the combination of rust and flowers!
Ginnie Hart: A little bit of wabi sabi with Mother Nature never hurt a thing, Robin, right?! smile
