Women and cats will do as they please. Men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Here's another for the North American Rock Garden Society.

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

I started a rock garden of sorts this past year... I paid this guy $100 to bring a load of rocks. He had a bobcat and was able to move them around for me. I think moving the rocks around is the biggest challenge. The bigger they are the harder they are to move! U can hurt yourself if u are not careful.
Right now i'm not happy with my pitiful rock garden. I think i placed the rocks okay, but i'm not satisfied with what i've got planted. It really takes some imagination to place the rocks in a way that makes it look natural instead of fake. I wanted the rocks to look like they were there all along. Hopefully, this coming year i can improve upon what i started!
