This moon and stars was left here by previous owners. We're not sure which of a many previous owners, but......it was present when we closed and on moving day. So it's ours now.
One place that moon and stars has not been in on that decorative rod. ......like we think it was meant to be.
The piece was lying in the bushes when we got here, as it is now.
It's not that we're lazy or sloppy homeowners. Honest.
I've put that thing back where it belongs and it doesn't stay. There have been times I haven't even made it back inside before it's jumped from its perch.
710 finally took my advice and got plier out to squeeze the hook closed. That kept it up there for 2-3 whole days. Tops.
Before you ask, no, wind does not seem to play a factor. Nor do I think deer or squirrels are involved....and you know squirrels are behind most everything! Maybe it's being done by the ghost of one of the former owners.
I'd say we'd vow to fix it, because it should be fixable, yet, here we are a year later with this copper piece sitting in the shrubs more than it has been in the sky.
I suppose we could throw it out, but where's the challenge in that?
