Garden Stones

While waiting for warmer weather I decided to make these garden markers that my niece had in her garden in Alaska. Please forgive the photography - guess I was in a hurry at that point. Basically, I have plant markers in the garden that stand out like a sore thumb. I typed all the detail about the plant, name, height, spread, time of bloom - that kind of stuff then laminated it and put it on a marker. Because they are white they really stand out. These garden stones will rest on the other marker so I can still lift the stone and see the details without the white jumping out at you.










At this time of year the white markers really stand out.

I still have a lot more to do, but this is a good start. What do you think? I loved the idea when I saw Wendy's. Thanks Wendy.

Those are great! It will add a touch of style to your garden (which I'm sure is beautiful already!) You'll have to post some more photos after things are blooming and getting greener.

Just adorable. They turned out great! I'd love to do this with my gardens. Though I don't know if I'd find nice rocks like yours.
