Stones for the Sixties

I saw these stones in my Facebook news feed and I just loved the idea! They are by artist Shenaz Bac and her Facebook page is is http://www.facebook.com/shenazbac.

I love the way they look and I think they would be an amazing addition to a George Harrison-themed garden.

Her work is quite intricate. Given the volume I think I will need, I may try to do something myself, perhaps with larger stones, and maybe take as inspiration from some of the items directly linked to George- his hand painted home Kinfauns, his colorful Mini Cooper and his Fender Stratocaster, ca. Magical Mystery Tour.

I have some shady areas where I haven’t been too successful growing anything with vivid color. Adding various sizes and colors of some Sixties stones might be just the answer!
