I chose playing with rocks. I wish I'd taken a true before picture but did not think until I starting unloading the rocks from the stump.
When I first built this garden for Dad, Hubby made me a stump chair. The years and critters have worn it down so I thought it was time for it to move on to another purpose.
The removal left a hole. Flats rocks were gathered to extend the walk.
My ever present partner, Ms OCD, had me sort like kinds.
First collection rocks were separated from working rocks.
Round rocks, cave rocks, crystals and conglomerates had to be grouped.
Fossils, metamorphic and iron ore Ms OCD sorted and played.
Empty pecans, pecan limbs, leafs and other natural debris were picked and raked away to join my compost or my burn pile. Yep, that's the stump sitting behind my bench. Couldn't bring myself to remove it completely...yet.
