Weathervane Wednesday ~ When pigs fly!

Every Wednesday for almost a two years I've been posting photographs of weathervanes located in or near the Nutfield area (the former name for the land where Londonderry, Derry and Windham, New Hampshire are now located). Most are historically interesting or just whimsical and fun weather vanes. Today's weather vane can be found in Windham, New Hampshire. Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weather vane #95? Scroll down to see the answer....

Today's weather vane can be found on Mammoth Road in Windham, New Hampshire, not far from the intersection with Route 102.   It is on the cupola of a carriage house next to a private residence.  This is a cute two dimensional pig, with a beautiful green patina on the copper.  You can see this cupola at night since it is usually lit up from within. 

And then there is a sad side to being a weather vane fan.  Occasionally, some of the more valuable and historic weather vanes are stolen.  Here is a recent story from Sanford, Maine:

  1. Oh, I love the green patina on this gracefully leaping pig. In flight.

  2. I have never seen one like that before. He is a cutie. There is a blog called Happier Than a Pig in Mud and I'll be she would love it. I'll pass it on.
