Stone Art

I have a lot of stones at my place
that I have collected over the years.
mostly from the Baie de Chaleur; 
and wherever I travel.
Rafaelle, my neighbour's 9 yrs. old daughter,
did most of the art forms with the rocks/stones.
It is amazing what she did in a few minutes.




The white spot is embedded in the leg,
a natural tattoo.
The head could have been a piece of asphalt.

Pirate flag





 These rocks/stones near my deck replaces grass.

Ancient Rocks

Rocks for borders....
(It needs some improvement)

Pathway into the jungle

 Chives growing in the rocks.

A Tiny Garden

I made a Tiny Garden
 with pieces of  broken terracotta pots.
The plants have just been transplanted.
The garden will look better in a few weeks.

I used  plants from my garden, mostly ground sedum.

I filled in the stairway with moss

also the crack in the pot.

I used another pot for the stand.
Small pieces of broken pot,
were inserted for the stairs

A bottom from a broken pot behind the house.
"Hens and Chickens" in the small pots

"Snow in Summer" in the pot to the right.
This plant flowers white in July in this region

and should trail down the stairs....


The little house is terracotta.
On the bottom it is stamped
 "Ricard"... Le Saniton d'Art,
Marseille, France.

Garage Sale Find
(My photo is not very clear.)

"Chives" in the little pot beside the house.

 They will grow taller and flower blue
To the left is...
"Bethlehem Sage"  
one of the first plants to flower here.

When the blue and pink flowers are finished 

the plant remains green all summer 
with it's beautiful speckled leaves;
 a great ground cover under bushes/shrubs.

Terracotta Pots

The look, the quality, 
and the colour,  makes 
these pots my favourite.
Terracotta is an earth-friendly pot,
made of rich Tuscan clay,
 that brings out the best in your plants.
I am sharing my collection.

The natural look of these clay pots beautifies
 and enhances anything planted in them.

A porous clay,  helps roots breathe and
 retains moisture for healthier plants.

 Patina adds character to aging pots.

Other  pots below, 
The largest one is a
Strawberry Pot. 

Planted with Nasturtiums.

Primitive Straw Dolls

I am sharing my 
Tiny Straw Dolls
Primitive Straw bodies,
Hand painted faces on wooden heads,
wearing Victorian lace...
and holding Chic flower baskets.... 
I have been collecting these for many yrs.
at flea markets here and there; 
Whenever I'd see one I had to bring her home.
As I assembled them for photos today
I realize, I have ...(A Wedding Party).

A happy bride
