DELIVERED: Over 75 lbs of a custom cement mix that Sari made, Swanee is 5 feet long & almost 3 feet wide & 3 feet high...We had to reserve a Ford Escape from ZipCar in order to deliver her...The nest she is sitting on is a handmade rope nest(Sari wove this on a hula hoop using a monkey chain knot) made of 750 feet of different types of 3/8 inch rope(including glow in the dark)...The rock was there by this pond when we got there...We are hoping that Trumpeter swans & other waterbirds & earthbirds will feel happy to land here by this pond upon seeing Swanee...So grateful to have been able to borrow a flatbed dolly from our building maintenance crew, which made installation possible...We never would have been able to carry her across the grass by ourselves...Also thankful for ZipCar's wonderful Ford Escape, which was a joy to drive & Swanee fit perfectly once the rear seats got folded down flat & some kind soul left us 3/4 of a tank of gas so we didn't have to fill up...This pond is 45 minutes North of Toronto & West, so the good weather was oh so helpful too...
