Stone: Beautiful, Strong, Timeless


This past weekend my husband and I visited a local “Stone Retailer” Stone Garden when we picked up some river rock to finish our fountain for the garden.  I will be posting our big reveal for the raised bed garden and fountain soon!

Stone Garden is just beautiful if you have never visited it you should; they told me they actually have students come on field trips there and I thought I would share with you some of the photographs I took while I was there!

Just about anything you can imagine made with stone….they have!  Any project you want to complete with stone they probably have too.  They have everything you need to help create a unique one of a kind garden space.

They have scary statues….I need to put this at the end of my driveway…LOL :)

They have modern water fountains:

They have beautiful, traditional fountains:

They also have a beautiful bird bath with dragonflies carved in it- I love dragonflies!

They even have stone mushrooms:

Another nice surprise was a stone mancala game.  We love this game in our household!


I love this fountain and I love the rusty mailbox below!

I am home sick today but hopefully I will be on the mend soon….I am sipping on some lemon tea with honey and plan to have soup with lunch.

Take Care’…..

Fondly,

      Thanks so much! I was so excited to be able to pick up some stone there although we are frugal so it was a modest amount but I think once you see the big reveal that it compliments the fountain nicely.
