Aside from having a rather odd-looking and currently occupied bird house (pic to come, promise) in the back garden I also have the most unique weather vane. Yes, I have a weather vane "planted" in my garden. Ok, I'm big into whimsy! LoL
When we moved into our house this lovely pooch, with its missing directions, graced the cupola on the garage roof. It was soon replaced with a new weather vane, sans pooch but with the needed additions of E and S. Suddenly I had no idea what to do with our retired puppy. I didn't have the heart to trash him. That seemed cruel!
Uncle Steve to the rescue! (About 5 years ago) He found a way to anchor the new garden ornament securely into the earth and it's been there ever since. Rain, snow or shine, I smile just seeing it there.
Yes Hallie, I have a weiner dog in my garden.
In other news: V has a new phone. I know this because I was a part of the whole "V's new phone" debacle. I'll let her tell the whole story as I'm positive it's infinitely more interesting in her own words, but I got the honor of briefly blogging for her today. Feel free to check it out.
