Rockville has Moved

posted in: Rocks, Whimsy | 11

My Rockville Village has gone through lots of transformations, and this year the whole rocking village moved to a new location.

Rockville used to be set up on the garage path, but this year I decided it needed to be in a more visible location. When it was time to decorate the garden for the 2021 season I started moving the whole village.

The honeysuckle garden was chosen as there were already a lot of rocks there and my claypot lighthouse. They slowly moved in. Thank goodness it is easier to move rock houses than real houses.

A new house was painted during one of our lockdowns.

The rock was the perfect shape for a new addition to the village. It had a natural roof line and was fun to paint.

The new location is visible from the deck and various garden areas and when I go out to trim the garden edges I can’t resist moving a house around a bit. I love it in this new location. I have also added some other rocks I’ve painted just to fit in with the rocking theme.

Be sure to have a look at my rock projects and see all the other types of rocks I’ve painted.

      I watched the bee enjoy the flowers on the rose of sharon, so much pollen stuck to it. Today I was busy snapping photos of the monarch on the milkweed. Nature never fails to amaze me.

      Hi Deb, if I lived close to you I’d paint you some for your fantastic newly landscaped garden. Too bad postage would be too high to mail you a couple. Enjoy dabbling today.

    Your village deserves to be in a prominent visible spot. Since we got back to the cabin in mid-July I’ve been working on rock painting. First I repainted my large turtle. His paint was peeling on the face especially. I decided to brighten the colours while I was at it. Then I painted a large rock turtle from scratch. I just finished that. Those two and a large ladybug are down on our front deck at the cabin. The heavy weight helps dampen the bouncing when waves come over the front log boom.
