Rain Chain

Pine cone rain chain on Mom's studio.

My Mom made this adorable little rain chain out of pine cones to hang on the corner of her studio.  It has been cold, overcast, and rainy here for the last week.  The garden is mud.  Of course I had to go in anyway and sunk up to my ankles.  The potatoes are looking great and I am happy to report the corn is up!  So instead risking a shot in the muddy garden, I leave you with the rain chain instead.  Have a great weekend!  See you on Monday...

I love that rain chain. Maybe she can go into business making them. It is raining here too but the garden is liking it so I am happy!

these are great. and is there a significance to the "rain chain". i agree with dmoms, how'd she do it?

Me three! HOW do you make those? I love the idea of rain-and-pinecone music (and rain is in the forecast for the rest of the week!).

Thanks everyone!...
I'll have to ask her how she does it!

This is such a great idea! Hope your mom won't mind if I steal it for myself? Thanks for sharing, all those cones are just sitting there being neglected and...it's about to rain again!

That is something I wouldn't of thought about. Although I use pine cones as bird feeders. Buy some peanut butter smear it all over and inside as much as you can. Then roll them in seeds. All you have left to do is string them up and watch the birds eat them like crazy. ALSO it's a great project to do with kids. As long as no one has a peanut allergy.
