Each April our fair city holds it's annual Spring Cleanup. Once a week you can discard all of your unwanted items curbside and the city picks them up for free.It has become a public free-for-all, if it's out on the curb then it's free for the taking. Everyone understands if you help yourself to the freebies then be courteous enough to make sure the remainder is left in an orderly fashion, and not strewn haphazardly across the home owner's lawn. We call it 'ditch-diving'.
My daughter has 'picked' endless useful items throughout the years, it's almost unbelievable what people will discard.Today, she spotted this antique hall tree laying at the curb. A beautiful piece of history, tossed aside.
It now has a new home, and will be well -loved.
