Jolie girouette, on dirait le coq français.
Picturit: Indeed so, Martine. I love this kind of weather vanes.
Reminds me of my neighbors roof smile
Picturit: This is the roof of the farmhouse and the top-tiles are cemented together.
Do you mean the neighbours in the USA? I have to say that I hardly see tiles like these in the USA. (in places where I have been)
A great find!! Nicely done!
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth.

I do enjoy the Ruster's call!
Picturit: Me too, but I am so glad that it is not my neighbour..... wink
Cock-a-doodle-doo!!!!! I love it, Astrid.
Picturit: Kukelekuuuuuuu.... thank you, Ginnie.
With its beak open, you can see very clearly that this rooster crows. LOL! but it doesn't bother the neighbors... nice backlighting...
Picturit: I think the neigbours have a rooster too, Marie. So they can make some noise together smile.... and it is farm land too.
Thank you.

An interesting looking weather vane Astrid. What is it on the left, a dog?
Picturit: A pulley on top of an pole of the haystack.
This picture was taken "in the boonies". This is the roof of a farm house and in the back of the farm is a haystack. The weather vane is placed on top of one of the 4 pulleys that pull the roof up. I have a link that shows how such a haystack looks like. Just scroll down in the pages. https://erfgoedstem.nl/de-wandelende-stadshooibergen-van-hasselt/

...ah, that may well be, but it is still my favourite day of the week smile Us retirees can enjoy just slightly less crowds once the rush hour is out of the way.
Picturit: I know what you mean, Alan. For me I like every day of the week and although we have rituals during the week, I can be spontaneous on the dot.
Bien vu ....sourires !
Picturit: Thank you, Claudine. A rooster has such a wonderful noise, I am glad though that I don't hear one who might wake me.
A bit quieter after yesterday's wind and rain. I bet this cockerel was whizzing around a bit
Picturit: I think with all that spinning around, this one does not know the difference between night and day and what day of the week it is grin

That’s a nice tribute to Ginnie, because I know she likes these Astrid.
Picturit: I know she does and although the rooster is very common, not much seen as a weather vane, Chad.
Leuke foto voor deze week die winderig, liever stormachtig begon !!
Het is hier nu halfbewolkt, maar het waait nog aardig !!
Picturit: Dank je wel, ik denk dat deze haan aardig aan het tollen is geweest en amper tot kraaien kwam wink.
Het waait hier ook nog aardig dus bij jullie nog een tandje erger, als het droog blijft lekker een klein stukje wandelen.

ik heb je uitleg bij" Chris" gelezen Astrid

zoiets heb ik nog nooit gezien..

hopelijk is deze met de storm het noorden niet kwijtgeraakt...

prettige dag

ps: bedankt om je uitleg voor "Astrid"
Picturit: Dit soort hooibergen zien we niet zo veel meer, maar altijd leuk als ik er weer ééntje zie. Ik denk dat deze haan al heel wat stormen doorstaan heeft. Ik ben erg trots op mijn naam omdat ik ben vernoemd naar een prachtige vorstin die helaas veel te voeg overleden is.
Nog een fijne dag vandaag, het is best lekker nu met die wind door de haren smile
Ah, Ginnie beat me to it! Cock a doodle-doo! Great in B&W, Astrid smile
Picturit: Thank you, Martin. Our rooster say: Kukeleku... wink...

Leuke krantartikel. Great picture - without the article I wouldn't have guessed in a thousand years. Poor cock, he is screaming his head off and the lazy farmer is still sleeping.
Picturit: JA leuk toch, Louis. I wonder how the rooster is now doing, we still have a stormhere. He might be 'seasick by all the turning around now grin...
That's a most unusual weather vane.
Picturit: I thought so too, Brian. But one that belongs on the farm.
How wonderful this is in silhouette Friendship
Picturit: Thank you so much, Ruthie.
Have a nice day.
The sky looks appropriate for a nor-easter!
Picturit: It is a "nor-easter" indeed, Tom. The river here is now also very very high.
And my guess that the rooster is seasick from turning in the wind.
that rooster has it's beak wide open and i think that it would wake up the whole neighborhood Astrid... Ginnie loves weather vanes... i'm sure that she is pleased with this one....petersmile
Picturit: I am so glad that I don't live in a neighbourhood with roosters, Peter. Ginnie liked the weather-vane too.
well seen and a good post for the new week, Astrid. i wonder what are the rope and pulley for?
Picturit: Thank you, Ayush. It is a pulley to get the roof up. a hay stack starts out being small and the roof will be close to the ground, the more hay gets stacked on the hay-stack, the higher the roof needs to go.
This was Ginnie's picture today on FB. Look at the top left picture to the haystack. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10221739293454257&set=a.1234724230914&type=3&theater
Fabulous image and weather vane smile
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Cherry. I love being "in farmers-land" there is so much to see.
