July 8


These are in one of our flower beds. They are called water bells. When it rains they collect water and then dump over when they get full. If there is a breeze they bump together and make a ringing sound. They make a nice accent even when they are just sitting still!

That is so cool. Where did you get that? My mom is an avid gardiner, she'd love that.

A few things I love, listening to the rain & wind chimes. Here is an "all in one" gadget for me :-)

I need to find some of those! I can think of a dozen people that would love them as gifts. Thanks for sharing another great photo and idea!

I recently saw some of these in someone's garden and loved them. Now I know what they are called. Thanks! I might have to get some of those for our garden.
