Wind chimes

Wind chimes

The day after a storm, a layer of snow muffles the outdoor world. In the stillness, the only sound I hear is an occasional tinkling of the chimes that hang from the house. The music makes me think of sailboats in a harbor, anchored on a sunny day.

For some reason, I always associate the sound of wind chimes with summer, even though some folks leave them up all year. So whenever I hear winter winds ringing wind chimes, it seems incongruous: the sound of summer in the landscape of winter.

Wind chimes are great indoors as well. My central air is directed towards a wind chime I have hanging over my kitchen island. There are some awesome wind chimes at HTML//www.juniestreasures.com

Actually I tend to put out my wind chimes for the winter because i miss the colours in the summer and easily replace them with colour catcher and wind chimes. yeah, if your about to get gale force winds you bring them in but i think of that as my winter garden.
