A MERE SNIPPET

Serendipity Seeking Intelligent Life on Earth

That’s what I write about in this blog. Snippets.

Magical Pebble Paths That Flow Like Rivers

The garden or back-yard is one of the best places in a home for the home-owner to express their creative side.

We collected this list to show you what a well-done pebble garden path can look like.

River stones and pebbles worked really well for the projects in these pictures, but just about any stone can work as long as you can think…

A lady in Attleboro was violently assaulted as of late by a gigantic swarm of wasps which brought about her being hospitalized with more than 500 anguishing stings.
