Not a windhund


Here is my new wind chime dog hanging in the tree all charged up with solar power. It's still very windy today but thankfully not as rough as it was yesterday.


Having read my previous blog post my daughter informed me the German word for greyhound is windhund but she thinks my windhund might need a diet :)  She would know that as not only has she got two beautiful greyhounds, she is learning to speak German and she loves  to visit Berlin and her German friends.


Firstly we took not a windhund into our garage and turned out the lights to test if he lights up and he does.


 Then I photographed the English side of the box.


How can you tell there's not much to blog about anymore :)

    1. I do like my "not a windhund", I think that name will stick now.
      You're right, we must stay in touch with our blogpals, now more than ever.

  2. Nope don't think your 'cutie' is a windhund. He is too well fed!

    I do love wind chimes. We have 3 right outside our back patio door.

    Open up!

    1. No he's definitely not a windund as he's too well fed :)
      It'll be lovely to hear the wind chimes in the gentle breeze, not the strong winds of the last few days though, those were howling.

  3. I really love your little 'not a windhund' he looks so cute - I hope he's very happy living in the tree :) With the brown patch over his eye he could almost be a very fat Poppie but she doesn't have brown ears and feet :)

    1. "Not a windhund" is very cute, I wanted to own him as soon as I saw him. I think he likes his spot in our tree, it was chosen carefully so he won't knock into any other branches when it's very windy. Poppie would never be that chunky with all the lovely walks she has :)

  4. It's very cute. I hope the winds have clamed down now, then he wont get blown away. X

    1. The weather is much calmer now, the sun has come out and it's warm again. He's ceramic so unlikely he'd be blown away, well I hope not anyway :)

    He's been social isolating too long and not exercised enough! 🀣 Bet he looks great at night lit up :)

    1. That's it, the reason he's so chunky :-)
      He did light up red and green as well as blue but those colours didn't photograph well, another of life's little mysteries :)

  6. That's so cute. It's been far too blustery for windchimes over the weekend but it's a much nicer day here today, I hope it is there too.

    1. It's lovely today, sunny and warm with no sign of any wind, a complete contrast to the blustery weekend we've just had.

My daughter arranged for this card to be sent to us and on the reverse side is a lovely personal message. I've put it on the fridge...
