The Windmill

This windmill in our back yard was here when we moved in. The windmill served to aerate the pond. Since we don’t need it anymore we sold it to a friend of ours who is putting in a pond on her property. Last Thursday was moving day for the windmill.

The discussions began on how to best lower the windmill safely. Thankfully the windmill was installed on hinges so it could be lowered using the hinges.


Down safely and now to disconnect the fan from the base.

Loaded in the truck and trailer.

Now to remove the anchor pipes. All was completed and Cindy and her windmill went off down the road to her property.

Our friends who came to help brought their puppy with them. Addy and JJ weren’t sure about her but they managed to feed her from their palms.

Time to pull out more water toys for the summer. The kids kept busy with water while the helpers gingerly lowered the Windmill.

We are moving into another mini heat wave here in our corner of the world. It will be a good time for running through sprinklers!

We are fortunate at our property to share a well that is a high producer of water. Some people aren’t as fortunate.

Here in the U.S.A. we are celebrating Flag Day today. Happy Flag Day! Our flag is waving.

  1. Hello,
    I have seen these windmills being used just for yard art. Love the JJ and Addy photos, I am sure sprinkler time is fun. The puppy is cute! Have a happy day and a great week!

  2. Moving a windmill looks like quite an undertaking! Glad it was moved safely to its new home.
    Water play is such great summer fun! Addy and JJ won’t mind the heat wave at all!

  3. Our flag is flying proudly too. How nice that someone could use the windmill. That is a sweet puppy. Looks like your grands were having a fun time.

  4. I am glad you found a family that could use your windmill, Ellen, and that they were able to move it. It was so big! Having a good well is also a blessing, especially with so many areas suffering from drought and higher temperatures the past few years. We have reservoir water through Denver water. Thankfully, all the rain we had this spring helped the eastern divide be up to par, but the western slope is in severe drought. My grandchildren loved a run through the sprinkler and playing with a water table when they were little….enjoy their joy!
