hope grows in the garden

My basket of seeds has been taunting me these past few weeks. Those little seeds are longing to burrow down into the dark earth and begin their growing process. I've been putting it off... after all, February is too early to begin spring planting, right?


But I, too, have been feeling the same stirrings as those little seeds. Let's hurry up and grow already! But before I could jump into my raised beds with my seed packets, I had a little project I needed to complete first. Inspired by these from Pinterest:

I decided to make my own:
a few stones from our collection and some acrylic paints that we had on hand...

voila! (I gave them a little coating of Modge Podge just in case...)


























So yes, they are already hard at work in the garden... let's hope I didn't jump the gun by getting those snap peas in the ground. But it's March now, after all. I expect happy, little shoots to make an appearance any day now...

Great idea to use rock as s marker. It may not be faded from the sun if they are coated by something??
