Pansies and ----- rocks?

I can't resist picking up a bag of rocks from the beach when I am in Nova Scotia. Each one is soooooo nice! The rocks had been sitting untidly in a heap on my boardwalk. When I planted my pots of pansies there were some empty spots so I decided to fill them with the rocks.

I was happy with the results. Doesn't this look nice with the rocks on the edge?

Here is the same pot after the flowers have grown a little.

Alea at "Premeditated Leftovers "(one of my favorite blogs) told me about Flaunt Your Flowers. So for the first time I am joining Tootsie at Flaunt Your Flowers Friday. She has a lovely blog and I look forward to more "Flower Fridays." And thanks Alea for the hint!

I'm also joining Shana at "Blaze 'n Crochet" for a blog hop called Friday Follow.

The rocks are very pretty in the planters! You should share this tomorrow at Flaunt Your Flowers Friday at I bet the other gardeners would enjoy seeing the combination. It is always fun to discover a new idea!

I love your rocks in your planters. I do the same, and it is such a nice way to display our treasures. My GrandLoves have noticed and are always bringing more for Grams. I love it.
Love your pansies...a fav flower forever.
