Duck, Duck ..........Duck!

I know, I know - I'm pretty sure the phrase is "Duck, Duck, Goose" but there wasn't a goose involved in this project, only the duck.

My husband was straightening up the workshop in the barn and found an old, faded duck whirly-gig with peeling paint that he didn't even know where it had come from.  He decided to cut a new duck and asked me to paint it.  We just put it on a garden post and are now waiting for a bit of wind to see if it works!

Not only are the propeller-like wings supposed to whirl but the duck itself is supposed to rotate on the metal rod.  So far we haven't seen much of either movement but he makes a handsome addition to the garden entrance, don't you think?!
