INTERESTING GARDEN

Walking round the small Peak District town of Tideswell (more of that to come another time) in June we came across a garden in front of one of the lovely stone cottages that was full of all sorts of old stuff. This is just one corner of it although I would have loved to have gone in an moved the watering can out of the way.

I like this, Brian...even the plastic watering can and garden hose.
Brian Walbey: I don't mind those items but they are a bit out of period for the rest.
This is such a great little garden... it makes me smile just looking at it....petersmile
Brian Walbey: The other side was also really interesting but it had a mix of really modern stuff as well sadly.
I love old gas pumps!!! Really like how you've captured this!
Brian Walbey: Funny how you call it gas and we call it petrol isn't it. It is a fine old pump though, and the old mangle on the right is a real treat.

There is often something in a picture that you wish wasn't there - sometimes I don't notice until I download, and it is far too late then
Brian Walbey: I often get that result Lisl, sometimes I can clone the interloper out but more often i can't!

I can remember petrol pumps like this Brian!
Brian Walbey: So do I Chris, indeed I have come across old closed garages in the country with pumps like this standing there.
Those were the days, Brian. HA! We're really getting older than we think. smile
Brian Walbey: Indeed they were Ginnie. Since 24th.July talking of age is no longer a conversational matter for me, you will know what I mean next year smile
stunning re din there
Brian Walbey: A real eye catcher as one walks by the garden.
This beautiful image takes me back to my youth Brian!
Brian Walbey: It did me when I saw it Richard.

I'm not shy Brian - I would probably have moved it (ask Bill).

The pump and mangle hold court though so don't feel too bad!
Brian Walbey: There was a gate next to the path so I couldn't just quickly move the watering can and then put it back without effectively trespassing on somebodies privacy!

That is one hell of a good petrol pump, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It certainly is Richard, look quite good in my garden.
I like the hanging basket in the cute little corner.
Brian Walbey: Maureen's got one just like that just that.
A lovely reminder of times gone by, which many of us will remember.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Suzanne, I think I remember everything here!!!!
I love those old petrol pumps. I won't make any jokes about grandma's anatomy and the mangle
Brian Walbey: Yes lovely old pump isn't it. You mean the one about Granny catching her '*its' in the mangle don't you smile
We had an old mangle at home, I used to play with it and several times ended up with semi crushed finger tips !!
Brian Walbey: And I bet your Mum had told you not to and had no sympathy when the inevitable happened smile
i like the cake signboard peeking out from all that vegetation
Brian Walbey: So do I Ayush, when I was a youngster Lyons mad some delicious little fruit pies just large enough to hold in ones hand to eat, sadly that's all history now.
A fascinating corner!
Brian Walbey: Iy is Tom, and to the left of the picture is another collection of old stuff.
A rather wonderful old pump, love it.
Brian Walbey: I wouldn't mind having it stand in my garden to be honest.

I once visited an elderly couple who were the last remaining providers of petrol on the A417 by a hand operated pump.
Brian Walbey: I wonder what happened to their pump.

Haaah.. as soon as I saw this I immediately knew the location. I had a weekend in a B&B a few years ago about 100yds from this. I like the old wringer.
Brian Walbey: It si a very interesting front garden, loads of old stuff in it.
I can see why this part of the garden would catch your eye, Brian. Such an interesting selection of things from a by-gone era.
Brian Walbey: Off picture to the left is another collection of old stuff.
