Pretty painted rocks.


​​

  1. Etched rocks too. I have the tools needed for these. I use them in woodcarving too.



Uploading…



More painted ones…



I would love to do this. Don’t know where to find the rocks though. Lol…

Aren’t they beautiful??

Living shades. ..beautiful.

Here are some interesting pictures of the present and future of plants and gardens.

​ We need plants in our lives. It helps with oxygen and also we enjoy the greenery.

​wow…awesome! I can smell them now.


I believe the above ones are wisteria’s. Gorgeous!


What a cool tunnel to walk through.


A very nice shade with privacy too.

I have english ivy that is nice. He doesn’t like it, but it is really pretty. And a old heirloom. This  would make a really cool dense shade.


If we keep letting the earth be polluted, this will be the way of the future. But I prefer a quieter type personal space.


Even this offers some sort of naturalness. I think it would be nice to have some flowering plants throughout though.


I thought this concept was interesting. But I worry about sunami’s in the lower areas. And you need a desalination plant also. I noticed there wasn’t much In the way of flowering vegetation here also.


Here is another ” future ” concept. Not very many trees or flowering plants. Although easy to maintain.

I would prefer fresh water rather than saltwater.  I have lived around saltwater.  It tends to breakdown things eventually.

I wonder how these futuristic places would endure during rough storms. I mean really rough ones!

Personally, I would rather take care of what we have NOW and not have to worry about these other blandish future places. 

There Is nothing like the real thing! And It also gives us a form of exercise and pleasure at the same time. We can choose what plant we want, what colors we want and where to put It. Like an artist, only this would be a living canvass.

Flowers give us more pleasure when looking at them than just greenery. Don’t you think so?

All the pretty flowers.

Beautiful flower pictures that are really gorgeous!

​This is the angel trumpet I was talking about at the bottom.

I found some really different flowers. The white one I would love to have. They call it a Japanese dogwood, cousin to ours. But this one is wild looking. I love it. And it can be bought here when they are in stock.


I don’t know what the others are, but they are beautiful!







Wild aren’t they? The last one I think is phlox or creeping thyme? I want to cover some ground that isn’t “fixable”.


This one is a angels trumpet.  They are gorgeous and come in many different colors. The hummingbirds and butterflies love them. 


That’s my photos for the day.

Garden, pretty ideas and cheap to make too.

Cool garden ideas that hardly cost anything to make.

​I thought this would be cool to do. Maybe so several, side by side for privacy, even though we live out In the country.

I want a “living wall” for outside for a sitting area. Plants also relax me.

The picture above Is mostly succulents or desert type plants. The stringy looking ones look like what they call burro tails. They are easy to grow and you don’t have to really water them that much at all. Looks like it Is a mix of plants. I see a fern and a few others .

Pallets are good too and you can put soil into them and grow plants. Many places will let you just come and pick up pallets for free. I have also saw a house built from them too. It actually looks great. And..hey, if it is free….less money you would have to spend. 😉  Google pallet houses. They are cool.

I really love gardens and love looking at all the ideas on pinterest. Some are really cool. 

I like water gardens too. I found some ideas on how to make them much cheaper too! I think i will try some.

We have kind of a good eco system here and I want to take care of it. I do not use pesticides. None. There are more natural ways of getting rid of pests.




And below is one I have saw in some doctors offices. They are really cool. I would love to make one.


Very relaxing to listen to. This would be cool to have In a oriental type garden. Gorgeous! And It Isnt really as complicated to build as it may look.

As long as you have water movement, you wont get any mosquitoes.  Plus I have some frogs. I read they help eat mosquitoes.  Bats do too, so do dragonflies.  I love dragonflies. I would love to do some dragonfly art in the yard. Maybe some windchimes or set some stained glass in the concrete stones I am going to make. Or other art like some woodcarvings. 

One man had some property that had wimsical wooden art carvings In the least place you would expect It. I wish I could find his site. These were pretty large scale, life sized carvings and he was good! 

I might do a few chainsaw art pieces. I learned how to do that too. But I only use the already downed trees. I dont like cutting trees out because for one, we need them for many things. Shade, animal habitats, birds nesting and cooling off and also for winter too.

Many farmers just clearcut most ALL the trees out. That bothers me too. So much dirt and hardly any trees!! Cows and horses need shade. So do deer. I try to take In consideration the animals. They are losing too much of their habitats.

I will have a LOT of work on my hands getting these things done, but at least it can be my spot of relaxation. Mine.

Next time I will show you some really cool flowers I have found. They are awesome too. 🙂
