Vase on Monday:


Anyone who has been following my blog for a while will know I get obsessed by things – right now it’s LOVE ROCKS!

I have been cutting out hearts and have a few ready to go

It makes me feel so happy to see them waiting to find their way to a new home. I’m excited to see where I put them.

If you would like to read the story of Love Rocks go here. It is one of the most moving, sad, uplifting, inspiring stories ever. I am so full of love and admiration, I am looking forward to “spreading the Joy and Love one rock at a time” with all the other Love Rockers.

I have been trying out different labels for the back of the pebbles



And have at last come up with a 4 column page which, if you feel inspired to make some, you can download as a PDF:

spreading JOY and LOVE

one rock at a time


Just click here: ‘love-rocks‘, save and print.

Joining in with gardeners all over the world in Cathy’s glorious gem of a meme ‘In a Vase on Monday’.

Linking in with Cee’s Flower of the Day.

    • So glad Melissa – I’m having such fun with the Rocks – it feels quite impish and playful to be leaving Love Rocks around – I put one on top of the wing mirror of the only other car in the car park near the beach yesterday – I hope it brought some JOY!

    • Yes it is a ‘Lords and Ladies’ or ‘Cuckoo Pint’ Cathy. The leaves are great for added pattern at this time of year, but the plant is a bit invasive, I’m constantly trying to get rid of it – but not completely of course!

  10. You will be spreading a lot of love and joy with these Sandra – and I hope you are finding joy in your little blooms and greenery too. The last school I was at had a garrya still alive against all odds in a scrap of dry soil and producing the most amazing tassels. Thanks for sharing yours today
