August Happiness Challenge ~ Aug 14 ~ River Rocks in My Garden

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I find river rocks irresistable. Whenever we go to the Beaches, I come home with several in my pockets and purse. I still have one that I picked up as a little girl that fits precisely in the palm of my hand. Somehow a pile of them had made it into the kitchen and Justin asked me today where I would like them. I replied that I really wanted them in the garden but knew he didn't want them there. We pulled out so many stones and little rocks from the soil that he just can't imagine wanting to put any back in. But today he looked at me and said, "Go ahead. Go put them in the garden." I ran out there and placed my little rocks around like I was helping the Easter Bunny hide his eggs. I'm still smiling about it now!

That is so cool about the stone that still fits in your palm Jamie!

I remember you picking up rocks on our afternoon to the beaches, LOL.

Lovely image and I think it's quite wonderful to put them in your garden.

What a cute image, of you running around placing rocks like an easter bunny! And sweet of Justin to give in.
