Monday, I buy rocks!

     Finally the water is on and I can plant the garden and a few more things. So even though it is not sunny out, I will be outside most of the rest of the day.  Does this make me happy?  Yes!

We have 4 neighbor kids that live a couple blocks down the hill from us and we see them as we pass by in our vehicles.

  On Saturday they were flagging down cars to buy rocks. They had painted rocks to earn money.  I am still laughing about it as they were so funny and cute. They were so happy when we stopped and bought a little blue rock from them.  What entrepreneurs.  I have to say as a child I found several ways to make money but I never sold rocks. Hubs and I giggled about it off and on all day, but then we are easily entertained  these days.
    
   I have to get another bag of potting soil for my wheelbarrow garden and I have flowers ready to plant in it. I also have several Sun flower starts coming up in the garden so I am going to go out and dig some up to transplant before hubs finally FINALLY tills it again.

Have a a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  1. Wow, I would love to have painted rocks in my rock garden. I amuse E our Amish neighbor as I was picking rocks out of the field before he planted it

    1. Look at all the huge rock fences in Ireland all from rocks out of the ground.

  2. I love the idea of using an old wheelbarrow as a planter. I wish I had one. I would buy some painted rocks from neighborhood kids. Fun idea. Have a good week!

    1. I waited 25 years for our old one to get holes in the bottom and then put a piece of metal in and repainted it for a yard display.

    1. I love the fact that we are on opposite sides of the growing spectrum it keeps me abreast of the seasons.

  5. I didn't buy any rocks - but moved rocks today - BIG rocks. Oh my back!
    I love those little painted rocks - how neat for the kids to earn a little money. Hey, they sold pet rocks back in the day and somebody made a fortune!

  6. I have only the bed of my wheelbarrow left, so I may make holes in it and plant something. Maybe squash since they have pretty flowers. That is cute they are selling rocks. Little ones or garden rocks. I assume little ones to carry in your hand. But, Chef seems to say they are large ones for garden decorations. Tommy and I are always laughing at the antics of children we see.

    1. Actually more money has been made world wide from hauling and mining rock than from any other form of mineral. We think of it as having no value.
