Little Grace Notes 23″ Windchime
Little GraceNotes windchimes are the smallest of our “small windchimes”. They create a soft melody in the lightest breeze. Hand-tuned, Little Grace Notes are guaranteed to sing a lovely tinkling on their own, or will harmonize nicely with other larger chimes. All Grace Note windchimes are tuned to the key of C, and the Little Grace Note is a perfect addition to hang alongside any of Grace Note’s medium or large windchimes. These little windchimes come with a 10 year warranty against breakage.
Made with Loving Hands in the United States of America
All windchimes sold by us are Made in the USA. Stephen and Rachel Betzen (owners of Ecology Shops Inc.) have visited the all the US manufactures we work with. We visited Grace Note Wind Chimes in April of 2014 and hope to visit them again soon. They are located in Mariposa, California “just around the corner” to the entrance to Yosemite National Park. If you are ever in the neighborhood seeing this national treasure, you might want to drive by and see their little storefront in town and see these windchimes in person.
Ocellate Gall Midge with Windchimes
Some amazing things in life are little. These beautiful bright red little spots on this maple leaf are called galls. They are created by gall midges to survive (food and shelter) till they metamorphize into their adult form, which is a small midge fly. Acericecis ocellaris, known generally as ocellate gall midge, is a species of gall midges in the family Cecidomyiidae. Other common names include the maple eyespot gall and maple leaf spot gall. Cecidomyiidae is a family of little flies known as gall midges or gall gnats. As the name implies, the larvae of most gall midges feed within plant tissue, creating abnormal plant growths called galls. Cecidomyiidae are very fragile little insects usually only 2–3 mm (0.079–0.118 in) in length; many are less than 1 mm (0.039 in) long.
So this is really looking at the little home of a larval midge fly…. Perhaps it would like some little windchimes to hang near its home.
