Being somewhat of an aficionado of garden ornaments I noticed, in our local factory shop, an accordion playing rabbit which I had to have! Can't find a picture of him, named David by Mrs G BTW, but I did find accoridion alligator which could well be my next purchase :-)

Anyone else got any?

Cheers

DtG

Or if you would rather have real musical ornaments we passed the singing ringing tree yesterday!

Aaaaaaaargggggggg !!

Stuff of bloody nightmares. Windchimes ! Hate them with a passion.

There you are, a peaceful sunny afternoon, sitting in the garden watching the flowers grow and from next door a constant tinkle, tinkle, tinkle of f'ing windchimes.

They are a public nuisance and should be BANNED!! The singing tree is probably horrendous to anyone who lives within the sound of it. Me, I'd bung it up with concrete.

I'm curious, now: have you ever heard an Aeolian harp? Though, as they are designed for window sills, I'm not sure they count as "Garden Instruments"

A friend of mine built an electric Aeolian harp. Feeding into a very large PA rig. I never heard it but it was apparently rather terrifying. His wife got him to dismantle it after she was standing next to the speaker with the volume cranked up to 10 at the moment when he dropped the harp.

I have an old LP of Melanesian music which includes a sample of an instrument you might call an Aeolian organ. Very large lengths of bamboo with slots cut in each segment at random orientations. They were set up on the beach. As the wind changed in intensity and direction to blow across different slots, different segments sounded. The idea was that these served as an audio signpost to guide the blind souls of the dead on their journey out to sea.

I have a glass blown whistling wind chime.

It will blow up to five different notes depending upon pivot.

It is refilled /topped-off about twice a month with distilled water.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

On a more serious note Don, yes Bird Song can be wonderful (apart from the hordes of Common Seagull which infest the town I live in) Part of that beauty are the variations which occur. With a neighbours bloody wind chime you get the same monotonous, slightly off key, jarring cacophony day after day after day.

Indeed, but concertina alligator does not alliterate. Concertina crocodile does but then someone would point out that it is not a crocodile... :-P

I wish I had a sound sample to illustrate.

Each of the water tubes "warblers" depending on the wind.
Usually, it is only one followed by another.
On a gusty day three and rarely a fourth get involved.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

unlike the previous coyote howl that left my yard littered (for real) with cat-tails.......Or the following. DUCK calls that created a plague of ducks of biblical proportions.....the song thrush might bring Pease. HOWEVER, rats....ground rats and not tree rats are congregating, and formulating immediately below my bed.
