"We got the colorful yard ornament in Saugatuck, Michigan at the Gary Daniel's Shop. It moves with the wind. Thanks to everyone for your votes. Friends had suggested we enter our yard in this site and it has sure made us realize what a gem we have in our own backyard. Thanks again, and hey, if you haven't voted --- we would appreciate your vote!"
