Garden Toy

Yes .. gardeners get to have toys beyond the utilitarian working the garden TOOLS ! This copper windspinners ? I'm not sure that is what it is called but heck .. I think it works ? .. funny how easily you can be hypnotized watching that movement .. or is it that working in the garden makes you sleepy while watching twirly things twirl ? : )

I had an identical one and it eventually came apart at the welded seam. I love spinners and wind chimes and stained glass doo-dads hanging around my garden. I have to be careful not to overdo it though. The windspinners are almost hypnotic to watch!

I just love spinners in the garden and have all sorts, including a similar copper one. Yours looks great.

I've never seen one made from copper! It's lovely.

I have always liked the look of the spinning copper in the sunlight...so sparkly! We have a giant bug...I might post his picture sometime.

Gail.. I must see your bug ! Please post a picture of him ? LOL All garden toys have their own unique flare : )

Nancy the copper is especially ideal .. the weathering affect is really nice to watch.

Crafty .. post some pictures of yours ? I love seeing other gardener's toys too !

Hi Joy, that is really pretty and I have never seen one like it. My addiction are my trolls and different kind of rose balls and other decorations. I am going to link your blog in mine. Hope that's ok with you. Andrea
