Herb Garden Plant Markers

Every morning when I walk my dog down our dirt road I look for rocks that are flat on one side.  
The county just graded our road and it normally turns up many new rocks for the picking.
I have been looking for just the right ones to make plant markers for my herb garden.
Well yesterday was the day I had collected enough.
 First I gave the rocks a good bath and let the dry in the sun.  Then I used a paint pen to write the herb name on each stone, and finished them off with a coat of clear spray paint.
I can’t wait to place them in the herb garden next to their matching plant.
I think it will make it easier at the beginning of each season also.  It’s easy to weed out a plant when they are first coming up, they all seem to look like weeds at that stage.
I ordered my heirloom herbs online and am waiting their arrival.  
Stop back by and see the stones in the garden.
