It Is a Whirligig Kind of Day

RI Way


whirligigs on a RI real estate farm

One of my clients has a wonderful gentleman's farm that is well tended and I like the motion of the whirligigs (New England through and through) that help keep the birds away.   It is wonderful to see the things that worked for the old RI farmers still work today...centuries later!  Great motion in the hot air balloon or the running horse...brings to mind that all of us should be spending more days outside.

Hello Ginny,  That is different, I forgot my eastern upbringing of items to keep the birds away.

I agree Ginny, we do need to spend more time outside.  I'm moving to a new place this weekend, complete with a backyard garden.  Looking forward to enjoying it!

Ginng I can see where some people might like that, but there will not be any gentlemen farming in my future.  I require sleeping arrangements which do not require a flash light and going outside to take care of business in the middle of the night :)

Thank the Lord, spring is finally coming to the North East.  Just got back from Newport, my favorite run away place.

Ginny, I think there are many old 'remedies' that have gone by the wayside.  Good to see when one is still being implemented like the one in your photo.

Ginny, not sure if I have ever seen this, and if it keeps the birds away.... what a deal.    Our weather today is gorgeous, 73, and tomorrow should be near 80.

I am tooooo New England I guess and should have explained more about these playful whirligigs that were used outside to keep the birds away from the new harvest planted ...I guess it truly is in my neck of the, shucks...start a trend elsewhere!

Hi Ginny Gorman.  I was surprised to see that your "photo" wasn't a still photo at all.  How wonderful!

Whirligigs often provoke whimsical delight.  I remember when I visited Amish country in Pennsylvania, there was a house that kept my attention for awhile.  It had quite the collection of whirligigs!

Ginny- I agree with you and love your whirligigs.  I had no idea that whirligigs were used to keep the birds away.

Interesting take on the picture and sometimes we can all use something like that when we have one of those days.

Hi Ginny.  If the weather would warm up we could enjoy being outside with the Whirligig.
