Garden Tools

I love to collect vintage garden tools.  Looking for a place to hang them I thought of this broken rake - no handle, but I didn't need the handle.  The tines make a perfect rack.

In the bright sun there are wonderful shadows from the tools.

Good morning, neat idea to use the rake for hanging your tools. Great shots. Happy 4th of July, have a great weekend!

Very cool, and they were constructed to last!

I love the shadows the tools make. And, them being old, you just wonder who has used them. Gentle reminders of the past.

HIYA Jo!
Now THAT is a beautiful picture. I like them both, but Am especially fond of the first -the matte weathered wood and metal against the white. Did I mention that that is my favorite combination in the whole world? Yup.
Happy Fourth my friend.

That looks great - I love old gardening and farming tools as well though I don't collect them. The only one I have is a sickle that I bought because I remember seeing my dad using one when I was a little girl. It isn't on display - maybe I should find somewhere for it to go where it can be seen.

LOVE the "rake rack"!! And the shadows are really neat too!

Very nice! Using the rake is a brilliant idea. Can you imagine the many gardens these tools worked in...the hands that held them...the things they coaxed to grow?
Love your second shot especially (like those rusty fish!).

That IS a perfect display!

What a difference in beauty and contrast when you add the shining sun to your still life! Beautiful!

Wonderful shadows and I love the way well worn garden tools look.

That is a stroke of genius to hang them from the rake!

I like this idea and hope to do it some day with some of my old rusty tools. I wonder if hubby will let me hang it on his shed when he gets it built. :)

A very nice collection. I like old kitchen implements, but don't have a place to display them any more. They are all boxed up in storage. - Margy
