my southwest garden
I love old minnow pails and watering cans... actually anything galvanized. I found the stand they are all dispayed on at my favorite little thrift store for only $2.50!
Many years ago while traveling in WI from Eau Claire to Appleton, we came upon a yard sale inside an old barn. Randy was not too keen on stopping, didn't want the kids to wake up and we had no room for more 'junk'. I would be quick! Well, I immediately saw the old Radio Flyer kids wheel barrel in the corner... the old guy wanted two bucks. I showed Randy... no way... why?... too big... we could take it apart... just hurry... yeah, it fit... I was happy!
Several months later I saw the exact same wheel barrel in an antique store for $96.00! Yeah, now Randy was happy!
