Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Giant Carrot

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 these weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are very unique.  Often, my readers tip me off to some very special and unusual weather vanes.

Today's weather vane was seen in Orgeon!

Do you know the location of all the weather vanes in post #315?  Scroll down to see the answer...

Today's weathervane was spotted and photographed by reader Jonelle Kenagy.  Jonelle is a friend through the Francis Wyman Association, descendants of Francis Wyman (1594 - 1658), an early settler in Woburn, Massachusetts. She lives in Portland, Oregon, and spied this giant carrot weathervane atop her local New Seasons Market on Hawthorne Street in Portland. I think this giant green and orange carrot is very appropriate for a supermarket, don't you?  The bright colors make it very visible against the grey sky. 

New Seasons Market is privately owned grocery chain local to the Pacific Northwest.  There are none in New England, so I don't know how many have fun weathervanes like this one.  

Thanks for the photo, Jonelle!  I hope to see you again at the next Wyman Family Association reunion.
