I built this little rocky area near the Sheila's Shed using rocks from our paddocks.

That's beautiful, Marrion (Y) . Now, apart from the beautiful rocks (and I hope you tell your cattle not to tread on the paddock ones 'cos they're needed for the garden), I think I can pick out Nastursiums, possibly Petunias, maybe a young Cosmos and a red lettuce or two going to seed?

Okay, so I know I'm wrong. Any clues? :lol: :lol:

Clever little cookie :lol: :lol: you are spot on (Y)
The rocks were picked up by hand by the old-timers and stacked in piles so that they didn't interfere with the ploughs etc. Makes collecting them a breeze :lol:
