Old, But Colorful

brook with rocker on deck


I swept the snow this morning with this old broom and leaned it against the old rocker with the old basket on it, on the old deck. Old is not bad, old is weathered and worn to show it’s been there. I should really replace the broom some day but I never remember until I need to use it, though all the broomstraws are broken off at the first string that holds them together, which is also unraveling, but still quite red, while the handle still has a little of its original turqouise. It all makes a fine still life.

  1. Sounds as though its still quite functional, which is what matters. Love the photo!!!!

    • Don’t worry–even if I get a new brook, It’s only going to go off to the side…with the other old ones!
