Do you remember that I painted some little bunnies on rocks for Easter? Well, I also wanted to paint other animals and I needed different shapes of rocks. But alas! There are no rocks here in South Florida. I remember when I first moved here from Kentucky, I wanted to make a nice terrarium and put rocks in it, so I went out in the garden to find rocks and could not find even one!! I quickly found out that all we have here is what is called Shell Rock, which is just deposits of shells, thousands of years old!
I decided to go to a beautiful nursery that is at FT. Drum, Florida, quite a drive from my house, but they have literally tons of different rocks from all over the U.S. and Mexico. Here are some that I bought. I bought about 60 lbs. of rocks.
My friend, Beth, went with me and she also bought a bunch of pretty rocks. We wanted to get some stepping stones to paint on, too, but I really thought we should wait until we get these done!
