Outdoor Wednesday




It is always interesting to see what nature will provide for Outdoor Wednesday. Our hostess for this special day is none other than Susan, A Southern Daydreamer.




There are many ways to bring back memories. This old plow is in a beautiful garden near here. The garden is filled with beautiful plants and several items for you to pretend you are really using. This adorable child showing us how to use this is none other than my great grandson. I am thankful the children of today will not have to use these as a means of making a living as we did when growing up.


This is a neat way to use part of an old plow. I thought it looked great in the flower bed. I snapped this around the area.

What a cutie pie, your great grandson is, LV.... Kids do need to learn about how WE did things WAY BACK WHEN... They don't appreciate all that we had to do...

Great post.
Hugs,
Betsy

How wonderful! When we moved the bungalow, there was an old rototiller in the yard. I've been thinking about using the rust-colored beauty as a feature in the nursery.

I hope you are having a lovely week!

I love seeing that old historic stuff. It's amazing how far we have come in such a short time. And, while the work back then could be back breaking I can't help thinking we have given quite a bit up. In many ways I think we have thrown the baby out with the bathwater. We don't seem to be all that much happier with all our modern conveniences

Good morning Meme, I have missed your posts so I came over to catch up. Love your pink and I hope you had a lovely Mother's day. I laughed when I saw the Blue airplane seats. You are definitely a Blogger now. I lived on a farm until I was 9 and the old farm equipment is familiar to me. Your little grand looks so cute trying to plow with that thing. HA!

Have a happy day Meme.
Hugs, Jeanne

You know I love vintage garden tools in the garden. Anything that relates back to my ancestors. Your grandson looks so cute! Happy Outdoor Wednesday.

I may have to see if I can locate an old plow. It would be a great addition to a garden.

Hi Meme, sweet post :)
Thanks for stopping by my place, I didn't actually post a pic of the house we built, those in the background were neighbors!

I like that picture of your great grandson. I used a plow like that when I was growing up. I didn't enjoy using it as much as your great grandson is, however.

LV,

I love the old plow in the midst of the flower bed. I guess it is finally laid to rest.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
