Someone made this Earth in six days, and on the 7th. day, they threw boulders on my property! I moved as many as I could, digging, crow bar, and a come along,(crank pulley system). Some are just too big! I figured out that if I couldn't move them, why not cover them? The two separate "Rock Gardens" pictures shown, each hide huge boulders, deep in the ground. One can be as artistic as they want.

Frillylily and Christine, you are most kind. I can't take credit for painting anything, unfortunately. The "camo" pails were actually purchased like that, for $1.00 ea. All the pots are from "Dollarama" (or your equivalent) and I just used a soldering iron to melt drainage holes in them, because a drill can't be used because the material splits. The hanging pots, which I really like, I got for $2.00 ea. from a Building Supply Center, severely marked down. Cheers!
