so much depends upon a red wagon

bathed in sunlight,
idle in the summer grass.

Absolutely! Our children and grandchildren had them too. Childhood would not be the same without a little red wagon.

Irina said...

It looks abandoned. And so beautiful.

Kate said...

But where are the white chickens?

JM said...

And it looks like it could be filled with abandoned treasures as well Brattcat, just can't quite make out what they are!

Have one of those wagons in our garage....collecting dust and odd balls and racquets.
Love your milkweed photo....

Sharon said...

And, this one is just perfect!

I got one of these too in the garage attic, waiting for another day.

This is a classic. I wonder how many people walk by scenes like this and fail to pause to appreciate them because they do not have a camera in hand.

Nice shot. And, after a short search, looking for an old memory, a vague remembrance, I was surprised by the number of songs about red wagons!

Beautiful!

I had one of these, not much different and it was heavy with my little brother on it!

A red wagon. One of the leading signs of childhood and summer. I hope to see a bike with training wheels before long . . .

Bob Crowe said...

I had one (a Radio Flyer). Obviously you had one. Are they still around?

Magnificent capture, memories, light and joy!

Some of my memories have a little red wagon in them. I also recall visiting many cities in the U.S. in my little red wagon.

Re your comment about thrift shops: On the day I took this photo, I visited three thrift shops. I love thrift shops for the serendipitous potential. But these three were all a terrible disappointment. Most of what they had should have been tossed in the garbage. The rest was in disorganized, dirty heaps. Ugh!

The one pictured didn't look too bad on the outside. Inside was a different story. A miserable mess!
