Yarn-bombed wheelbarrow

Cath GB who lives in England sent this, and the notes below:

Sandra, I thought of you today when we spotted this colourful yarnbombed wheelbarrow at the Court Garden in Holt, Wiltshire (a national trust property). Happy to add it to your collection!

There's even is a hedgehog under it, knitted of course.

Bo King sketched a wheelbarrow

Years ago, Bo King "did a worksheet." Bo is a friend of my kids (of our family), and used to sit at our house and draw. He drew everywhere, but when he was here, I got to watch. I loved this, and the wheelbarrow is in the upper right, partway between the first wheel and the jet engine.

Pink, yellow, unstealable



It would be difficult to sneak this one away. Seems the tire has been spraypainted yellow.

The bins say
food waste
landfill
burnables

"A pink wheelbarrow, hanging out with the bins at the May Day festivities last night,
held in Wilderness Wood, Hadlow Down, East Sussex."—Janine Davies

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.

A basketmaker in Baud (his wheelbarrow)

In 2011 I stayed with Helene McNeill in Baud (In Bretagne, in France). Her neighbor (and the owner of the house she was renting) made baskets, and apple cider. Here is his wheelbarrow, and one of his baskets:

Hunting eggs

This is the first Easter Janine and Karl have lived in the country. A basket might have sufficed, when they lived in the city, but Kes needed a wheelbarrow to bring back all the eggs and gifts from the meadow!

Mystery thing

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. 😊
