One of the favorite pastimes in Lakeside, Ohio the past few years has been rock painting. As a kid I loved to climb the rocks along the shore line but those rocks are not what I am talking about. Those rocks are boulders and not very portable.
The rocks that have become the popular kind to paint are the smaller ones that we used to just casually toss into the water. I can not tell you how many rocks I tossed into Lake Erie and yet there were always more the next year all ready to toss into the usually calm lake.
But over the past 10 years or so there has been a great trend of rock painting in Lakeside. There are even classes offered during the summer where kids get the chance to paint rocks any way that they want. What a fun way to express some creativity. When we were doing our Fairy Garden walk one yard in particular had a preponderance of painted rocks. All of the ones in the following pictures came from that one garden.
Of course I chose a red ribbon to add along with my prayer.
If you could leave a ribbon on the memory tree what would it represent? Don’t forget that every comment this month will help support the Connestee Falls Scholarship Fund
