European Galvanized Bucket

Hi Everyone
Happy Friday

Spring is Here

the white roses are blooming on our front portico
It is wonderful to feel the warmth of the sun today

Look at this
wonderful treasure
It is a very large Vintage European galvanized bucket

The mark on it says Krauss

Here are two new galvanized buckets
I hung these buckets on the side yard wall
how useful they are
I have used them as a wash tub
to soak my whites
as a planter
and even as a ice chest for drinks
to wash sandy feet after a trip to the beach

We use these buckets so much
it is great to have them visible
not out of sight and out of mind

Now I don't have to go hunting for them
they are not stacked up in the garage taking up space
and we have room for the car

I am off to check on the
sweet peas
I am trying again this year to grow them
(Thanks Sheila for your encouraging words)
they are looking good so far
I would be grateful for any and all
tips for growing beautiful sweet peas

    I am not sure I have been by here before, or I visited and forgot. (nothing unusual about that). =)

    In reply to your question about selling my scales on line. I am glad to do that, but the shipping might be prohitive.
    I can weigh one and get your zip code and see if you would like. Glad to do that.

    blessings and thanks for your visit to my place.

  8. I've lived in a lot of different places and I think the trick with sweet peas is cooler weather. I've found even in NorCal that putting seeds in the freezer helps, as does planting them in the Fall. Good luck!
