Summer Project – Painted Rocks

This project has been on my to-do list for a long time! A few years ago, our children's museum added a row of painted rocks along their outdoor walkway and I LOVE the way it looks. Thanks to some post-vacation freedom and cooler temperatures last week, I finally got our crazy, overgrown garden back under control and it is more satisfying than I can describe! Yesterday was finally a good time to add our little painted rock border.

We gathered these rocks two summers ago ...

Painted the base colors last year ...

And finally put the finishing touches on over the last two weeks.

(I think the rainbow is my favorite!)

Overall, the rocks look a little girly since the boys weren't really interested in painting - they each put minimal details on one small rock apiece.

I'm looking forward to adding some new perennials in some of the empty spaces this week. (Sadly, the ornamental cabbage that was growing around the mailbox died out a long time ago ...) Yay! This makes me so happy!
