Glory's Garden

All the world's a garden, you know, and we are mere flowers within it. Come, I'll show you!

Don't get any funny ideas!

Stoned Again

Yes,  I've been stoned again...perhaps that's not the right terminology, though. I'll explain.

So, there I was weeding the Julie Friendship Rose garden, when as usual I find a stone...and then another and another until...

Blimey! It happens every single time I weed this garden. For the past three years I get buckets and buckets full of rocks. This time I filled up 3 buckets with rocks and stones and most weren't tiny pebbles, either. There were a few huge ones I decided to use as stepping stones which wouldn't fit in the buckets at all.

Astonishing indeed. I always get buckets full of rocks-- no matter how many times I dig out all the stones I can find. How is that possible???

Ah, well. I suppose some mischievous garden gnome hides them in the soil when I'm not looking, just to screw with me feeble, heat dizzy head.

I guess it may be better than finding a snake in among the roses, but gosh-darn-it, I'm getting tires of getting stoned again and again and again....


  1. Glory, when the ground freezes it pushes up more rocks every season, if they're mostly flat limestone, they're a blessing in disguise, you can make a nice stone fence with them! WE have rounded, almost impossible-to-break granite stones, and all you can do with them is pile'em up in heaps! Make a little Stonehenge for your roses. ":)

  2. Yes, I suppose that is it. There was tons of freezing and thawing going on which leads to heaving those stones up. But you would think I would eventually get them all out, no?

  3. Your garden was probably a river bed long ago. Or a rock garden LOL!

    Happy Monday :)

  4. Then that would be true of my entire 4 acre peice! There is a glacial lake about 400 feet deep not more than a fifteen minute drive from here, so...could be that too. One never knows!


Whacha think?
