Yard Art


I hope this qualifies as "Yard Art"- it's on top of our garden shed. And I photographed it last May, on a rare blue-sky day : there's a reason that this country is so green!

Sylvester, when he was younger, used to move his legs in the wind, but arthritis has set in, and it's all he can do to balance on top of the shed.
I think he's doing quite well!

  6. Mimi, I didn't make the Maxines on my blog. I just found them on the Internet... I put Sylvester up on my sidebar. :)

  7. I love whirligigs - even when they have succumbed to old age and stiffened joints. They make me smile.

  8. I remember baby sylvester! I used to watch baby loony toones when I was a kid so I have a soft spot in my heart for him. I love your comment about him getting arthritis! You crack me up!
    I haven't heard about this meme. Is it a new one?

  11. Hi Mimi,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I like your yard art. I don't see any reason Sylvester should come down just because he can't do all of his old tricks. He still stands proud and looks adorable.
