Okay, here is my addition to "rocks" for http://www.blackbird17.blogspot.com
We have a lot of rocks in our yard...lots. These rocks came from our camp along Lake Ontario so they are not native to our yard.
These rocks are actually part of the foundation of our house. When houses of our type were built, the owners collected rocks from around the property and "utilized" them. I sometimes think that we actually may live on a "rock farm" as everytime I dig a hole to plant something, I come upon a rock.
This rock is a mystery. This rock forms a window ledge for one of the windows in our house. All the other window ledges are formed granite. We were told this portion of our house was built first, so perhaps the original owner had sentimental attachment to this rock?????
