Rusty Bits and Pieces

One of my readers liked my rustic photos a while back, so with that in mind I took the camera out and tried to capture all the old rusty items that adorn my gardens and outbuildings.  Rust does add a certain charm, and lichen munching away on rust is even better.

This was a functional two furrow plough a few short years ago.

And that is about all I have to say for today.

Musings and meanderings from the Musical Gardener.


  1. I really like the image of the horse scuffler handle (but have to admit that I'll have to look-up "scuffler" after I post this comment)!

  2. I had to go look up "horse scuffler" too! SO many fascinating rusty things. We have a lot of cool rusty stuff in our barn that needs sorting out.

  3. A fine collection of well-oxidised paraphenalia! They'd all look good with some flowers growing in and around them. Maybe next spring?

  4. I have a milk separater you'd be proud of!

  5. I was wondering what you would post on once gardening was done. Nicely done by doing rusty things.
