Dale Dailey shares his experience incorporating rocks into his garden in DeWitt, Michigan.
"When I was young and whenever I did something particularly foolish, my father would often say, “Son, you must have rocks in your head.” Possibly he was right because I continue to enjoy rocks and have integrated many of them into my garden. A few years ago, a sand mining operation opened nearby and I suddenly had an abundant supply of interesting rocks. The rocks are all glacial erratics; that is, rocks that were carried to our region of Michigan from Canada by glacial ice some 10 to15 thousand years ago. Following are a few of my favorites."
