PhotoHunt: These Rocks Rock

Rocks! What a topic for a weekly PhotoHunt!!! Or at least that's what I thought at first. Maybe I would capture photos of diamonds, often referred to as "rocks." Or of a rock band that really rocks.

Somewhere - and it's no telling where - I have a photo that I took of Ayers Rock in Australia, the world's largest monolith. What a climb that was!!!

Finally, I settled on these rocks. They're all on the short street where Mom lives. Just about every yard has rocks incorporated into the landscaping.










Aw, shoot! Why didn't I just go with rock salt?!!?!

I love that the rocks are part of teh gardens. Far better than removing them. Have a great weekend!

I love rocks too incorporated in my lawn. And that rock salt thing is funny! :D

I love big rocks like this. A perfect compliment to a lush garden.

These are beautiful, Sherry! I love rocks in the landscape - we're thinking of doing something like that in our yard - it's just such a great element! Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!

I'm glad you didn't go with just rock salt (not least because I've already come across a Photo Hunter who did!)! :D

Nice photos! We have some of those rocks around here in yards, just a little smaller, and close enough to the driveways for the snowplows to bang into every season....

My Photo Hunters is up, too. I hope you have a little time to visit. :)

Those are great rocks. It is always fun to see how people use rocks in gardens.

I love the natural look of boulders and rocks among the landscaping ~ so much more ineresting than squares of lawn! Looks like a lovely neighborhood. Chuckling about the rock salt too. Happy weekend!

Rita said...

Many of the yards here have everything from pebbles to boulders as part of the landscaping. It is the only way to make use of them.

I only have a few small enough for me to lift and wish I could afford the hugh cost of getting a giant one moved to my small rock garden.

Thanks for stopping by.

Nice photos! Wish we had some rocks like those in our back yard... or rather lived in a place where we could have rocks like those!

Thanks for the comment on my blog!

bing said...

Rocks are a greta natural feature for gardens - besides, it is far easier than dragging them out! LOL

Have a great weekend.
