This month’s giveaway is 4 of Granny’s crocheted Christmas ornaments. And the winner is…Sheryl Paul! Hope you like them!

Now for the answer to yesterday’s question. All of you who guessed the rocks were piled up to make room for a garden were right. In the picture above the pile of rocks are on the other side of the tree in the left hand corner. The wooded area used to be a cornfield. Kinda hard to imagine when you look at all the trees and bushes-well not for Pap he can remember when corn was actually growing there.

    Congratulations, Sheryl!!!
    I should have guessed what the rock pile was. We have a huge one like that here on the farm from when it was planted years ago before I lived here.

    Congratulations to Sheryl, those ornaments will look pretty good on her tree!
    Tipper, the picture at the top of today’s post, is that one of the figurines you made? She is as cute as a speckled pup. Did you sell some of them at the show you went to last week?

    Wow! How cool to already be getting ready for gardening with piling up the rocks. Yes, I do remember the icy cold well water I used to drink as a child.
    Your blog always brings back wonderful memories of my growing up here in the Blue Ride Mountains.
    I look forward to hearing Chitter and Chatter at “Writers’ Night Out” with their music.

    Wish I could be blessed to have a good water well. This city water is awful!!! Interesting to learn the meaning of the rocks.

    Tipper – as I scrolled thru the names, I noticed Cathy at tadpoles and teacups was on the list. She’s from my neck of the woods.
    Just a fun note.
    Love the bells – my nanny used to make them too.

    I guess the thought bypassed me of
    clearing for a garden spot. When I
    was little we cleared a big field
    of rocks and stacked them in neat
    rockpiles about every 50 feet or so. That created excellent copper-
    head dens. We had a bunch of feist
    dogs though and they’d sling the
    stuffings out of ’em. And this
    would make the work chores much
    more fun…Ken
