This toy tractor just showed it up in my yard one day. It never had a steering wheel, but my kids have played with it so much, it is quite amuzing. For a long time it hung from a tree. God bless my children’s creative play.

I had walked outside to do a painting of my mom-mobile, and this tractor caught my eye next to my perrenials.  The deep upright shadows and the pinks and yellows in the sunlight of the upper planes. and the interesting shadow that the pedalless spokes made on the cement. A fun study.
