Hello all and wondering if you could helpsmile

I saw a wind chime in a friends garden which I've fallen in love with, but she cannot remember where she got it. It has mini watering cans and buckets hanging from it, does anyone recognise this? Know where I can get one? Have trawled the Internet without success.

Thank you in advance

It is best if you don't jog her memory.

Wind chimes are hellish.

Ah I hate garden wind chimes, at our last house a neighbour has one. Would keep me awake on windy nights. Drove me absolutely bonkers. Don't do it!

I hope for your neighbours sake you don't find out ! Please just don't if you have neighbours.

have you even tried Google?

My ndn has one. We are no longer friendly thanks to it.

I found a twee one hanging in the overgrown hedge at the back of our patio area after I'd hacked it back. It went straight in the bin.

Agree, a definite way to make enemies.

Unless you live in a detached house far from civilization and the rest of your household are hard of hearing or very deep sleepers.

Agree with the others, unless you live in total isolation please do not put one of these in your garden, your neighbours won't thank you for it.

Perhaps she can't "remember" where she got it because she doesn't want u to get same one .

I really need to learn to do hyperlinks, don't I?

We've got a windchime, it's lovely but noisy. We've got no very close neighbours though.

Please only get a windchime if you are the OLNY one that will hear it, its like water torture for other people.

My neighbours have two, a metal one and a bamboo one - on windy nights (of which w have many) I could cherrfully pull their heads through their arseholes (which is what they are) until they were completely inside out....then I'd set them on fire.

Well this has given me some food for thought!

I do not wish to upset anyone, and never even considered them to be a menace. I will take your comments on board as the last thing I want is angry and bitter neighbours.

Thank you allegrwho that's exactly what I was looking for..

Oh my goodness!! I LOVE that wind chime! And have been yearning for gentle tinkling sounds in my garden.. Our garden is joined onto lots of other gardens though, are you all really saying that chimes are widely hated?? I didn't know.. Hmmm.. We do have barking dogs next door, and one garden has all night parties once a month.. Perhaps chimes aren't so bad?!

I think they're not so bad if the owner takes them down at night-rehangs them when actually in the garden.

My mum used to have a quite large wind chime in their little summer house shed. My dad would furtively tie elastic bands round it, he absolutely hated it. Especially when he stood up and would bang his head in it for the umpteenth time. At least the clanging drowned out his comments grin.

WhoKnowsWhereTheTimeG0es Sun 17-Jul-16 09:25:57

There's a house by my allotment that has them, it's bad enough listening to them when I'm there, every time I walk past I shudder and think "thank goodness none of my neighbours have them".

CatherineDeB Sun 17-Jul-16 09:32:23

I love them! The Woodstock chimes are properly tuned ...... Must add that my nearest neighbour is more than a mile away.

P1nkP0ppy Sun 17-Jul-16 09:36:03

My ndn had a really big wind chime and it was a form of torture. Thankfully the tree they'd hung it from blew down.
I loathe the bl...y things.

LifeIsGoodish Sun 17-Jul-16 09:42:17

Just imagine this AIBU:

My neighbour leaves the radio on in her garden 24/7. WIBU to take a very large mallet to it ask her to turn it off and only play it when she is actually in the garden?


WillIEverBeASizeTen Sun 17-Jul-16 23:09:19

Well I was in my partners garden today, he has 2 wind chimes in his tree. He has strategically placed them so the chiming is minimal, kinda defeats the object I knowconfusedAnyways, he's well aware of unnecessary noise so I think it's safe to buy them.

If one of my neighbours wanted to maim me due to my wind chimes, I would certainly take them down..on the other hand, if it was one neighbour in particular I would probably hang them outside his window...

Thank you all for giving me the heads up on how to preserve neighbourly relationshipsgrin
