Two innies and an outie

Nancy Calhoun, of Stanley, New Mexico, has shared her three wheelbarrows. All are holding art today. Two are small and indoors. One is an full-sized outdoors wheelbarrow holding an exotic item used (we hear) by oceangoing fishermen. Stanley is about 850 miles from the Gulf of Mexico and about that, I think, from the Pacific. So a glass float is a thing of safe, dry, desert beauty.

Mystery thing

Janine Davies wrote:
We were very surprised by this wheelbarrow, abandoned it would seem, under a large tree in a wooded area of the Millennium Green in Rotherfield. It was so unexpected to find it there, it was far from anywhere it could have been working, but on reflection we decided some children had probably brought it there for play. 😊

Up on a van


From Rue and Amber Kream, in Massachusetts. I'm guessing this one belongs to a tall man with strong arms.

Australia, from 1940

Claire Horsley sent this from Australia:



The wheelbarrow was made in 1940 and is located in an historic German cottage in Doncaster, Melbourne, called Schramm's Cottage.
