I am not sure if you noticed these cranes in the gorgeous from yard of the home on Octavia Street.
To our delight, we found an exact crane while out shopping at American Aquatic Gardens.
We have had a small problem with herons who eat our goldfish in the courtyard pond. I even witnessed one devouring the innocent creature.
We were told by a worker at Aquatic Gardens that the crane model is useful to ward off other creatures. The bobbing action of the crane in the wind seems to detour other predators.
J & I are yet to add more goldfish to the pond as we are waiting for the water quality to improve. I just cleaned out the filter after a long winter’s absence.
I love the look of the crane. It bobs up and down in the breezes we have been experiencing.
By the way, the vedigris one in the background will be returned to the front garden’s sugar kettle.
Before you say that my brick needs a good power wash, I love the growth of algae on the brick. I know folks who pay for that look, and in New Orleans it all happens naturally.
Crane on Guard, y’all!
