the new neighbours have put up some wind chimes… the kind that I like, not the high pitched tinkling ones…

wonder how long I will refer to the neighbours as new, lol…

reminds me of the wonderful ones that we had… they were a gift from friends and had a lovely deep sound… 

one year we decided to make similar ones as our Christmas gift for friends… 

George took ours apart to create the template and worked on them for weeks… 

we had great difficulty finding the correct type of copper, but eventually all the bits and pieces were gathered up… 

during that time he came down with an infection which damaged his heart… he just finished the gifts in time, as he was feeling so sick… 

he never did put ours back together… I think the struggle to get the gifts done really tarnished his love of them… 

a couple of months ago I found the bits for our original set, but apparently some of the pieces aren’t there… 

I can’t figure out how to put it together but with the lovely sound coming from next door I think it’s okay…

rose buds getting ready to open…


funny the things you remember…
