I made these whirligigs from a rusty old canister. They will be placed at strategic points in the garden to scare deer and rabbits hopefully. To be effective they’ll have to make a bit of noise or a buzz, and flash and flutter a bit. I’ll be making more dangling, tingling things to complement them. Breeze is a neccessary ingredient and we have plenty of that.

No matter how much I do to protect my vegetables from animals they will still get in sometimes. I can only try to keep it to a minimum. And then I do love those dear little creatures in the garden.
