My local post box - set in a lovely location, but you can't see much of it today (there is a gorgeous view there honest)!!!!! I'm afraid spring has not really 'sprung' properly here - we thought it had for a day or so, but alas - nope! Its grey/wet/windy and yukky. 56mph winds last night - can't imagine what thats done to any new growth out there. Bah - I love it here but can't the weather be a bit kinder to those little newly growing things? Or are daffodils supposed to grow sideways?
Anyway, coming to a post box near you - if this in the distance is what my nearest one looks like - I wonder what yours does? Or is your post collected?
We've one of these lovely red telphone boxes by our post box - it does make me smile, they are'nt very common anymore.
Here you go, most things (generally plants and seeds) I send from ebay foray's go from here, cards, letters, the odd bill and everything else - right in the middle of a junction of a very quiet road by the sea - not often many cars - its not exactly a motorway but its a lifeline if you don't want to travel into town, especially with the cost of petrol thesedays. Any savings that can be made on that score is great.
Isn't it gorgeous - all red and bright - its got a 'GR' on it - which I guess means its from King George - so how long has that been there? Its been built into the wall - gorgeous its now a part of the world here - very lovely and covered in lichens too.
Its got a little flap on it where the post goes in - you lift it up to pop the post in, I guess in weather like today - wet/windy/wild - its means the post stays safe? I've finally got the hang of making my little parcels of plants big enough to fit through this one, just in case I'm not in town - if I get here by lunchtime - it will be collected - our post goes by air - things from this little post box up here with that (generally) lovely view - can be anywhere else in the UK by 9am the next day - cool huh? All for the price of a few stamps. Whilst the weather might be unkind today and spring seems a distant memory (OK it was sunny on Wednesday!) we do have some advantages of living here - a fantastic postal service, especially for 'going sooth'!
