I started these bulbs on Oct. 27,2004 expecting them to take 6 weeks to bloom, and they had their first blooms on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, 2004. So it took 4 weeks! Perhaps the 6 week forecast was for flowers grown indoors.  Posted by Hello

Today I made Gypsystones at a pirate event, so I suppose they are piratestones. Then I hid them around a park in Upland CA.  Posted by Hello

Paper narcissus take about 6 weeks to bloom. They can be grown with or without soil. This pot has nothing but rocks and water in it. Posted by Hello
I saved this unusual stone for magical purposes. Posted by Hello
Cleaning and sorting the stones. At least half the stones in the bag were usable as gypsystones. Some of the broken ones were used in the pot for the paper narcissis. And the others will come in handy for future projects. Posted by Hello
The bag of stones came from AZ. I'm glad I picked the name gypsystones because they travel around like gypsies.  Posted by Hello

Stormy Weather

I'm glad I picked the name Gypsystone, because the stones do travel around! For less than $5. I bought a bag of stones and half of them are useable as gypsystones. Some of the rejects I used in a pot to grow paper nacissis in and the rest I'll save for future uses. Like making stepping stones maybe.
It's raining and I think of my gypsystones out there under a hedge or in a stream waiting for their new owners to claim them. If you found one, please tell use about it.

I left the first gypsystone on the window ledge outside of art supply warehouse in Westminster, CA. The first time I walked by it was still there, the 2nd time I walked by it was gone. So far, no word from the finder. Posted by Hello

Welcome traveler

Bless you little one. Fate has brought you to my humble web blog. Perhaps you found something special on your daily walk today. It may have been a handpainted gypsy stone, an elf hat or any number of things that I create to give away.
