Yellow Rabbit Lorry

Yellow HGV with rabbit and butterfly design

This yellow HGV has a story to tell. The artwork shows a butterfly soaring above domesticated rabbits in a flower field. It bears the dedication:

In memory of my loving wife Lynsey Ackroyd

but in spite of the sadness I felt reading that, I couldn’t help but smile to see this celebration on wheels. A few of the phrases written on it sounded like premonitions of the likely response, including:

  • Well what do you expect
  • Unbelievable
  • I don’t know who you think you are

Shiny side view of yellow lorry with rabbit design and reflections

The lorry was super-clean and shiny. It looked especially arty with the buildings opposite reflected in the paintwork, which made the bunnies and a friendly robin look even more like they inhabited a dream world.

The lorry demonstrates my fondly-held theory that we are all normal, and all eccentric.

Shared for the weekly photo challenge: smile. Coincidentally, this is my second animal and vehicle combination of the week. If you missed it, the first (a dog on a Vespa) may make you smile too.

  1. I thought the house was painted on the truck as well.. perhaps the house they’d lived in. This is a spectacular photo…and I love the truck.

  2. What a fabulous lorry. My daughter loves rabbits and was in awe when i showed her your photos.

  3. I certainly did smile when I saw the dog on the bike. That truck made me smile, too. What a story painted and written!
