This does not look like rubbish to me

"Wheelbarrows spotted in hard rubbish on our dog walk today." —Jo Isaac; Healesville, Victoria

Discussion ensued:
Sandra Dodd:
Now I want to know what "hard rubbish" is in American. Junk pile? They're not being thrown out, are they!?
Jo Isaac:
They are being thrown out! Each year in January, the council will come and take anything you don't want to pay to go to the tip for free. So at the moment, each house has a big pile of stuff out front!

I kind of want to take them as planters for my garden!

Prep for Spring

So these barrows were working hard today in East Sussex, in a rural area between Broad Oak & Burwash,in a friend's garden at Rainbow Cottage. They were moving compost and mulch material from a pile to the raspberry bushes getting ready for spring. The little green one belongs to their 3 yr old daughter.

The bright green wheelbarrow transported the 3 yr old daughter on a short walk we took to look at two meadows and a woodland a musician friend of our friends has just purchased. Nice 🙂
