Using river rocks in the garden
I just put some more in, and you can see how they seem kind'a *new-looking*, but they will settle in very quickly.
I have river rocks all over the garden, and periodically I check to see if a plant is trying to grow between them. If it is, I move the rocks out of the way, giving more room for the plant. For bulbs that die back after blooming, I move the rocks back into place - you know, so I'm not just looking at dirt.
I was surprised at how good river rocks can look, if you place them correctly, as if they are a little stream. Of course, if you do it wrong, it just ends up looking like someone is buried there, or something. As you can see, my *stream* isn't quite finished in this area yet, as I will continue it up to the cannas.
