On Monday I completed a little improvement to the front flower bed that I really like. I added a lot of river stone just under the windows. Previously there was mulch that was looking pretty bad, and the cats had been using it as a litter box. Gross.
I had seen a post on Freecycle for leftover river rock, gravel that had mixed, rounded rocks 1.5 inches in size. It looks like it is probably Texan stone based on fossils and the amount of limestone in it. Someone had purchased 10 tons to resurface their driveway, but had a leftover ton or so. Jenna and I went to dig a bit, and ended up collecting about 500 pounds.
