ABC Wednesday: T is for Tire

Tired tires with low tread make good tire swings.

To me it looks like the dogs are considering trying out the tire swing behind the fence below.

Yes we do find such innovative swings in rural India too !

Tire swings have a way of adding homey charm to a yard and takes us back to a slower paced era when cars were used less and backyards were used more. That last picture made me smile as it really does look as if the dogs are about to take a swing on the tire. :)

An excellent, low-cost gymnasium device for the back yard. :-)

I second EG Camera Girl's comment.

I trust you had a fab long Holiday weekend.

They sure do make great swings - I used to love them, although they would leave rings on my thighs if I had been wearing shorts!

When we were kids, my Dad had a huge tire that we'd float in the ocean at the beach and then we'd all hop on and have lots of fun!

I have a porch swing....but as a tire we love to swing in old tires.

Those dogs do look like they are considering it! HaHa

Lovely, - we always had a tire swing when the children were growing up, and then later for the grandchildren, - it hung from an enormous willow tree.

My dad built us wooden swings with THICK, scratchy (but much appreciated) ropes to hold them. We loved those swings, but i do remember thinking tires would be neat. Not a deprived childhood, though, since we did swing from a tire to drop into the local swimming hole. Fun post!

Love your photos. I am greeting

Tire swings make me nostalgic. I like them! And those dogs look funny - great capture. I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend too.

Kate said...

Tire swings are the best kind!

Thanks for info about Butterfly weed. May be it is only in North America. We have the swan plants for butterflies. Some one says they ( swan plant)are milk weed, but the flowers are completely different.

I didn't realise there is a meme for Today's flowers. I love flowers, I should check it out. I just found out about Camellia oil and how expensive it is. Got me excited and joke with my friend that we could process our own oil.

In 2 houses, I lived there were beautiful hydrangeas.

I like your blogs, they are like mine, a bit of everything.

Makes me want to just jump on it and swing forever.
What a great choice for the letter T.

Martha said...

I just posted about our tire swing last week for the letter S. Nothing quite like an old tractor tire swing!

Martha said...

Oh, silly me. You were over to visit for that post. :)

Reader Wil said...

Great T word! Very tempting to try it myself! Lol.

Hazel said...

It must be fun to watch if the dogs would really do what they're thinking. I love this T word; brings up nice childhood memories.
