:wave: SueBee
The problem with rocks is they take a very long time to develop.... Far longer than many bonsai.
I have this one here that's been growing for a few years.
I end up telling it all my day to day problems (& sometimes my jokes too) - however like most people, it usually just rolls its eyes & basically ignores me.

It looks like a lot of your rocks are missing their eyes? They must really be old!

LOL :worship: keep Calm and.... Bats in the belfry ? nah - rocks in my head will do it....yes I amd my rocks are "old" :tu:

Yep PeterB, I couldn't possibly move = my rocks would need a truck of their own.I find myself slowing down near quarries and over bridges just to check out the "possibilities"....danger ! Danger!
I drove over to Perth last year and Up to Qld this year and boy my rock collection just multiplies itself. :palm:

SueBee look below the box you're typing in, there are two tabs, one says Options, one says Upload attachment.

Click upload attachment,
upload.jpg
then Choose file,
upload1.jpg
then add file.
upload2.jpg
once you've got your files uploaded, then click on Place inline
upload4.jpg
Then click on Submit...or preview, if you wish to check what you've done.
