Country Buckets

Colorful buckets

I always find little surprises in country towns. They are usually things you just don't see in the city and things I wouldn't think about usually. These little colorful buckets are a good example of this. Marking the territory of the garden at the front of the house perhaps or adding some color to the otherwise dull street may be. I certainly did wonder what had led the person or people to set this up.

I wondered whether they had started with one stick and bucket or whether the whole were planned at once. I wondered who decided to do it. Was it an adult or a child who first came up with the idea?

One of the interesting things about the country compared to the city is that the buckets can be placed there and there is a trust that they will stay there and not be stolen or destroyed. They certainly looked like they had been there for a while and hadn't been targeted by vandals. It must be something about the sense of community we hear about in the country, where everyone knows everyone else. This can lead to a sense of being known and watched. Positive in ways but intrusive too I guess. This omnipresence of others might help to keep these buckets secure in their place.
