A use for your rock collection

I have a decent-sized agate collection but all it ever does is sit in a box. I love looking at them (some of them are gorgeous), but don’t really want rocks sitting all over my apartment and even if I did, they would end up getting lost or buried under a pile of papers. While visiting with one of the ladies at our apartment office the other day about her agate collection, I came up with an idea for displaying my agate collection: Put the agates in a vase, jar or other clear container, fill it with water, and stick a plant in it. While Weatherman was napping tonight, I did just that. I found a little vase, filled it with some of my agates, added some water, and stuck a little baby spider plant in it (I think Pothos would probably work well, too). Here are the results:

I think it kind of looks like I pasted the vase into the picture.
I actually set the vase on the railing of our balcony and then took the picture.

Lovely agates.

This certainly didn’t take all my agates, but now at least some of them are out where I can enjoy them!
