Gifts for Gardeners: Wind Bells

windbellsDuring the month of December, we’re highlighting all the gifts for gardeners recommended in the November/December issue of Northern Gardener.

Gardens should appeal to the senses of smell, touch and sound as well as sight. Here’s a way to add the spirit of the ocean to your Midwest garden or lake cabin landscape with a wind bell made by a Maine lobsterman and his family. North Country Wind Bells capture the melodies of harbor bell buoys and gongs as wildlife and nautical figures cut from recycled steel catch the wind below the 14-inch bells. Powder-coated, they are made in the United States and built to last for years. $25 and up.

Available at eco gardens, 600 Division St. S., Northfield; 507-645-7078.
