I wonder how many things we give as an unwilling offering to our gardens. I know I often find graters, spoons, peelers in our compost bin that somehow got mixed up when cooking dinner. Usually causing a few arguments about where the potato peeler is until someone says.. check the compost bin. Yep it’s there.
Here is a story about someone willingly giving up a bicycle to the forest that is amusing.
The famous bike in the tree dates to the 1950s and belonged to a boy named Don Puz. The house that Don lived in burned down, and he received the bike as a donation. But Don didn’t like the bike—it was too small for him and the handlebars were a bit girlie. As his mother Helen told the Vashon-Maury Island Beachcomber, one day Don and a gang of friends went into the woods to play. Don was the only one on a bike and when the boys went home he simply left it there.
"Probably as much as I detested the little thing, I just gave it a toss and forgot about it, and then denied knowing where it was." Don said.
55 Years later, Don visited those woods near where is mother lived and was surprised to what the tree had done.
“We went down there in the woods,” said Don, “and there was this bike in the tree, and I said, ‘That’s my bike. I recognized it, because I don’t think I’ve ever seen another one like it.”
Now I have a good solution for the glasses Christina and that is the Aussie Gardener Canvas Apron. It not only protects your clothes but also means you can stop leaving things behind when gardening. No more leaving your phone out and then accidentally watering it.
But if you leave a bicycle leaning on a tree, I cant solve that one.
Get your Aussie Gardener Canvas Apron as your gardening uniform. Handy pockets to keep glasses, phone, secateurs and gloves.
