Rock Hunt


I added this to show the size of the rocks. They are large rocks. About 40-60+ pounds each. It was a nice workout that's for sure...(-:






These rocks are being used for rock planters around my trees. I was very happy to find so many with Lichen(-: The planters are not planted yet of course but they are filled with my lovely homemade dirt and ready to roll(-: I can't wait till Spring planting time(-:

Please ignore the leaves etc. I am working on getting things cleaned up(-:

Hi Cindee,
I've not be be to visit you in awhile but see your still very busy in your garden. It's too cold and snowy here to do any gardening but I'm really looking forward to spring! Warm Hugs, Esther

Love the rocks, Cindee! This is definitely rock country so what better to do than put them to good use. I gathered some with lichen last spring and in the summer I thought it had all dried up, but as soon as it started raining again it took off growing and looking incredible.

I just love those. I wish we had a good source around us.

Cindee, Love the rocks, simply love rocks... What are you planting around the oaks? Our oaks so hate summer water that I just use a oak leaf mulch and rocks.

Love those rocks especially the ones from N.C. I brought a few back with me some yrs ago. Rocks here are more lime & have stuff in them that look like diamonds in the sun.

Did you notice the rock in the first photo is heart-shaped? I'm a huge fan of rocks and these are dandies with all the lichen. I bet you slept well the night after finishing this task.

Oh Cindee, you know how to get me excited. I love rocks! And yours are so cool! I bet they were a lot of work. I have learned to move them with a piece of carpet. I tie or chain an old piece of carpet behind my golf cart or lawn mower and roll the rocks onto it and drag them to where they can be rolled into place. That idea came when I was watching my son and his friends use same piece of carpet to pull themselves around. Their creative genius to have fun helped me find a way to get something accomplished.
