Weathervane Wednesday ~ A very special delivery!

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post weekly.  I started out by publishing only weather vanes from the Londonderry area, but now I've been finding interesting weather vanes from all over New England.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are very interesting.  Often, my readers tip me off to some very unique and unusual weather vanes.

Today's weather vane is from somewhere in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #247?  Scroll down to see the answer...

This very special weather vane was photographed on Carter Hill Road in Concord, New Hampshire.  The sign on the front of the farm house reads "Bartlett Farm - 1855".  The weathervane above the cupola on the barn is a a two dimensional stork with a baby in his beak. The whimsical stork even has a special delivery cap on his head!  The weather vane has developed a nice patina, so it is not brand new, but by the design it doesn't look very old, either.  

I'm wondering if an obstetrician or midwife, once lived here?  Or just someone with a good sense of humor?

This is NOT the Bartlett Dairy Farm on Josiah Bartlett Road in Concord. 


This was the home of Dr. Douglas Black, OB/GYN who passed away on 2 March 2017.  The weathervane was a special order from an artist in Massachusetts.

  1. That is a fantastic find, I love it.

  2. Heather, I am experiencing the same difficulty you had on sharing images from your blog to facebook. This has never happened to me before this week. I asked our social media chair to post it from her account. No problem. This is really frustrating. I was wondering if you came up with a solution?

    1. I was away for the last five days, and posting from my iPad produced those results. It was the same from my desktop. Now I post the link on Facebook and "x" out the image (always the incorrect image) and then I click on "upload an image" and post the correct image along with my comment and link. It's a pain, and it takes longer. I have no other solution. It's driving me crazy!
