Flowers for Sale

My friend and hairdresser Lynn has a lot of alstroemerias and started putting bunches of 20 flowers for sale outside her property for just $3.00 each.

Doug had made a sign for her hair cutting business and she asked him to make her a wheelbarrow to put the bucket/s of flowers in.

This is the finished result.  He thought of a more rustic wheel but settled on a pneumatic one as it is easier for Lynn to push.  Isn't it great.




Both Lynn and Doug came around for a meal last night - we all enjoyed ourselves.

  3. It is awesome, Sue ... please tell Lynn & Doug this. Could you also please send Doug my way, as I am sure I could find lots for him to make here for me ! Nice you had company for a dinner. I googled alstroemerias, they are lovely (and thank God for google :) )

  7. What a fantastic wheel barrow, - complete with roof and little hearts on the side. Think he could well have a little enterprise there.

  11. I love the little wheel barrow, great idea.

    Thankyou for the comment on the hair. The problem is that you can see through it now and I just thought if I grew it I could have a thicker fringe and put the lot up at the back. I used to do it like this years ago, either in a pleat or pony tail with a scarf tied around but even that could look wrong on an older woman.
    I'm sure it will all evolve. Or all fall out, lol
