Beer Can Yard

I must admit this yard has a lot of beer cans! We enjoyed checking out the yard with its nearly all-matching brand of beer (We did find strings of cans from a different label; same color scheme though). Enjoyed that some cans remained intact while others were cut to look like lanterns. But what caught us off-guard was the sound! It was only slightly breezy when we visited, but there was a very distinct wind-chime melody. Quite nice I'll add!

So unexpected. Definitely worth stopping by. Picture doesn't do it justice.
