I started this blog to get to know other gardeners and track my own garden's progrss. It is a wonderful way to honor the stewardship I have over my plot of ground I have been blessed with. Thanks for stopping by!

Waterless Pond and Rock Wall Idea

Thanks to Mrs. Green Thumb for hosting Blooming Tuesday - see her blog at http://msgreenthumbjean.blogspot.com/ to see other participants!
We spent last week in St. George , Utah where it is warm and very dessert. I loved this waterless pond and would love to put one like it in our entry area. (We are still under snow here.)

This rock wall was also at the house we stayed at. Here is apicture of a tall version, I took it to see more detail and a smaller height in the second picture.
I want to put a planter like this in our side yard.

Hi Paula
What a great looking rock wall! It really goes with the landscape in St George. I like the waterless pond. I have a real pond and its so much work!

Love St. George! The waterless pond was beautiful -- I'd love one of those too! The rock wall is lovely too. Hope you had a wonderful time.

Side note: One of our sons was married in St. George to a hometown girl last October. Just beautiful!

Paula - To answer some of your questions on your comment on my post.
1.) Sorry -- I don't know the name of that rose -- wish I did.

2.)Go to:

to make a mosaic like I did with the roses.

3.) Thanks for the compliments! ;o)
