It was two weekends ago that we had some beautiful weather in Oklahoma. I went outside and took photos of our freshly mowed yard and the plants that were doing so nicely. This all reminded me of creating a journal spread for March's Sketchbook Challenge:
When I hear the phrase natural surfaces, I think of nature and things outside. So I looked around for some interesting surfaces and came upon the rocks my husband was placing around some of the plants.
I love these rocks from the Wichita Mountains that are naturally circular. People living near the mountains' lake used them many years ago to build their summer cottages. When we moved into our house in town (near the mountains) we found a bunch of these boulders and used them to decorate the yard.
This is one of my favorite photos - boulders around a new plant. I'll be anxious to see how well it grows... and what it is! It's some sort of perennial, because we didn't plant it this year! In my journal, I put tape in the corners of the picture, but the image is actually glued down.
