I hardly got through the first chapter of Bound South without being distracted by a brilliant idea. I'm already up to my elbows in yardwork but I need a rock garden. I found a bunch of ideas on this website and I feel like it'd be easier to manage than our vegetable garden which is hosting a lovely little celebration of weeds right now. I mean, they're rocks. They crush unwanted plants. I just want to paint a bunch and lay them out so that I can pretend I have time to meditate in a colorful place with my eyes closed. I'm kidding myself, I have no time to paint rocks. But I do need to find time to hit up the field across the road and sneak some rocks home to arrange in such a fashion that stops tension in its tracks. Heck, maybe I'll get one of those speaker rocks so I can blast relaxing nature sounds...Oh, and I need some more solar-powered globe lights (like these). I'll get some low-maintenance perennials from my mom's next week...Here's what I'm thinking:
|Seedum - Stonecrop|
|Hen & Chicks|
Eep! I need these little guys, too!
