Three Flying Geese ~ Weathervane Wednesday

Today's Weathervane Wednesday photographs were taken in Dunbarton, New Hampshire.

Every spring I enjoy driving through the town of Dunbarton to view the daffodils.  The Garden Club of Dunbarton has sponsored a drive to plant thousands and thousands of daffodils along the roads and near the intersections.  This project started in 2015 for the 250th anniversary of the founding of the town of Dunbarton.  If you time it right, you can enjoy a tour of the blooms every year.  We took a detour through town recently and saw many clusters of daffodils, including this beautiful weathervane on the Stark Highway (Route 13). 

This is a nice group of three flying geese, all three dimensional attached to the end of a roof on a private home. There was no cupola.  There are no trees in the yard, either, so this weathervane is easily visible year round.  

Good spots to see the Dunbarton daffodils include all along the Stark Highway, especially down near the intersection with Route 77 near the Molly Stark house.  If you follow Route 77 west there are hundreds of daffodils planted on the dike just past the Pages Country Store.  Look along the entrances to driveways for more clusters of daffodil plantings. Mid April to early May seem to be the best times to view the daffodils, but it varies with the weather every year.
