As the leaves fall and the change of seasons, I am reminded of all the garden preparations that need to take place before winter arrives. Alongside of me, I observe many animals doing the same. I am always amazed how these little animals instinctually know the harsh weather is right around the corner and hae already begun squirling around collecting nuts and berries. Time to prepare for the long winter rest. Taking my cue from nature, I have found myself harvesting rocks, stones and pebbles and thinking of all the winter activities I can do with them.
I imagine sitting by the fire and painting rocks. Here are a few ideas I am planning on working on. I can’t wait to start playing with my harvested rocks, stones and pebbles.
1. Rock Word Garden: Paint letters, words and pictures on rocks
2. You are Here Sign In: Decoupage pictures of children and use Sharpee to write names
3. Spiral Herb Garden: How to Build a Spiral Herb Garden
Do you have an idea for using your found rocks, pebbles and stones? What loose parts can you begin to harvest this Fall? Share your comments below.
