Oh, your cairn! I love it. A rock from everywhere you go, right? I think that's what I glimpsed on FB.
Yep - we tried to get it started after Mike's mom died, but it took a while before we started actually remembering to look for rocks :)
I love all of your rock colors and I think this cairn is a super cool idea. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks! I like the different colors too. Maybe we should look for some pink ones...
We have rocks from NC, VA, WV, and OH thus far, along with sea shells from SC and NC.
We need to head over to Kentucky & Indiana :)
I'm not familiar with this tradition, and a rather like it. Each rock is a memory.
I had read about someone who had a cairn like this & decided that it would be a good tradition for us.
What a great idea and a lovely feature for your yard.
Thanks - I think it will be fun to see it grow & change...
And in that second photo did you have a visitor drop by to check things out? Lovely!
I wondered if someone would notice! It tickled me pink when I saw it. I think it might have been a robin :)
Sweet!It's dangerous to teach those robins to read though, Dana! LOL
LOL - yes our robins are insufferable as it is!
Be careful! My sister-in-law used to bring back a rock from the beach every time she visited it. When she moved from one house to another she had to hire a guy with a front end loader and a truck to move all of her rocks!
Ha! I don't think we'll get THAT out of control. I think we won't anyway :)
Once again, technically not wordless...:)The cairn is a cool idea. I used to save rocks from places I visited, but living in an apartment, it was hard to know what to do with them!
I knew you'd say that - ha!
That's pretty cool. A cairn, huh? I might try that....if I ever went anywhere cool.S
You'd be bringing fenders home instead of rocks :)
Did you bring the sand back from your trip, too?
Sadly, no - but its bag said it was beach sand so it's from a beach SOMEwhere :)
what a cool idea!!! like a little pile of memories.
Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
