The Stone Age...now isn't that cute name for a business that sells rocks and stones?
Lots of picture worthy rocks to see...and to consider for future landscape renovation.
This trip was just to whet our appetite, and to give us fodder for dreams and plans.
But here's the real draw: we'd like to install fountains in the garden, and have decided that the drilled rock style would be perfect in our garden.
We just have to decide where in the garden, and what kind of rock we would want drilled.
I'm leaning towards red rock...but the Japanese part of the garden might do well with a black stone. Maybe we'll have a few fountains scattered about...
To dream, think, imagine, plan....that is half the fun!
We definitely will be getting a stone bench....or two. I imagine lots of pictures being taken of friends and family seated on such a garden bench!
Eggs, rocks, fish, birds, flowers and faces...speckled things charm me into smiles.
Other rocks have stripes...doesn't this look like wood grain instead of rock?
(A cherry tree was in the corner of the property, heavy with the sweetest ripest cherries. I could have snacked on them for a long time...it is so tempting to be greedy with such tender seasonal fruit!)
The rocks and my Rock of a Husband: both colorful and interesting to observe. It actually is raining quite a bit, and his outfit is a last moment defense against the elements.
So what would you do with this rock? I've seen charming planters made with such rocks, bonsai pots, and candle holders. Maybe a frame for something?
The company had built a huge koi pond and water feature inside their showroom, and the ducks apparently were invited to live there too.
Their pom-pom duck feather do was a first for me. Is this a breed of ducks, or just stylish renegades?
Pop star ducks maybe?
and this one. Colorful pillows in mod designs caught our eye, and we left with two huge orange and white pillows for our patio couch.
