3 Stones

I love stones. There are small piles of them throughout the house, a few single beauties on their own and in the garden they are everywhere, usually where I am digging. But right out side the front door, between the path and the garden is a special collection of round smooth stones collected from beaches when ever we or friends have traveled. I always seem to bring home stones, even walking the dog I keep my eyes peeled for treasure. John now comes home bearing stones as gifts and offerings. Maybe we all know that in ancient times stones were known to be alive, holding soul and spirit and memory.

  1. It's amazing how many people collect stones... these photos are lovely.

  2. Hi Liz, I agree with Jo, amazing how many kindred spirits have rock and pebble collections around the place, they are special and talismanic I think.

  3. Thanks Jo and Fiona, so glad there are others that walk around with their pockets stuffed with stones. John tells me to empty out my pockets before putting clothes in the wash, I seem to be a slow learner.


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
