I was totally inspired after seeing this on pintrest.... http://pinterest.com/pin/115940603/

So, I dragged the kid away from the tv today. We weeded the front garden then collected a whack of stones from our veggie patch. We talked about spirals and rocks and Stonehenge while we made this for the faerie folk who inhabit our garden.





I know ours is a far cry from the inspiration but we had a great time making it, it only took a couple of hours and it was free! Woo hoo!

I love the original, but yours has a simple charm that I actually like even more. Smiley I may have to steal am inspired!

I like yours better.  It's gonna look really great when stuff starts to grow around the rocks!

I agree, I prefer yours. It's got a lot more character. I doubt the faerie folk would have been too impressed if you'd come up with something too "perfect". And you get to watch as it grows into your garden. Lovely.

Knickertwist - I really like this - what a fun activity for you and your kiddo! Could you take another picture with something to give us an idea of the size, of, you know the rocks, etc.?  I'm having trouble imagining the dimensions - this is just so creative. What a great way to spend time outdoors.   Cheesy

I'll take a pic tomorrow. It's about 4 feet across. Not very big, but large enough to notice  Wink

lol I agree with the others on the board...I put your garden spiral in my inspiration folder...not the original (it was too yellow brick road for me!). Well done & LOVE that it was a kid friendly, free activity.
