Thanks Marybells, I tried to use the black stones as a representation of water and when it rains they really glow black.

MB and PP it was a place that was a hard standing for cars, and when we took over the property a beach area was ideal really.

Clever idea, Linda, and very effective.

thanks Waddy, If it was a larger garden I'd probably have a small wooden rowing boat in it.

Hi HB I've been to Japan and they use stones and patterns in their gardens.

I've not seen any authentic Chinese gardens but they might use stones as well HB.
The Japanese way of gardening is amazing to see. Everything in miniature. They rake the stones in patterned ridges, usually incorporating a few large boulders there as well. I suppose they garden in a small way because of the lack of ground space.
