There is something really quite engaging about garden automata. This little chap is winding away on his starting handle every time the wind blows and there have been some good winds lately to help start spinning the propeller.
Needless to say the garden belongs to a retired farmer and he still has some real vintage Massey Ferguson tractors to ride on and polish and to plough and harrow his vegetable plot and cut the grass in the orchard too.
The funny little wind vane just extends the enthusiasm a little further, we bet it was a present from the grandchildren.
Come on wind, blow wind blow.
