Rocks That I Found

Sometimes I go out of my front door and I spot a rock, I go shopping and in the parking lot of the supermarket I find a rock, every once in a while someone places a rock in my mailbox, but at least once a week I take a walk in the forest or the fields to actively look for painted rocks.

Here I want to show you what I found, or what was given to me:

2022 Rocks

  • Rocks found in January 2022

Found January 19th, 2022 in a small park. The left rock lay in a forked branch, the right one was hidden behind a warning sign.

Recently we have two permanent places in our village where rocks can be exchanged. A small birdhouse and an exchange shelf. The birdhouse is not far from this park. There I exchanged one of my lucky pigs for the ‘good luck’ rock. As it turns out, this ‘good luck’ rock was painted and laid out more than a year ago and hasn’t been seen since. But I found it today in this birdhouse. Isn’t this lucky? But I will put it back into circulation soon so that it can make many more people happy.

This is the ‘rock exchange house’ a birdhouse housing rocks

and this is the ‘rock exchange window’.

I found these beauties during a forest walk. I know, that the 3 rocks on the right-hand side were painted by two very young artists.

On the 6th of January, 2022 I found these five rocks. I am especially fond of the fox.

Rocks found in August 2021

only one rock found today, but what a beautiful flower.

what a memorable day, came home with this treasure.


Today I had another very good day in my favorite ‘Rock forest’. Isn’t that a cute guy on the left?


Unfortunately, work did not leave me much time the last week, to go out and search for painted rocks. So far these five beautiful rocks are the only ones in August. Hope there will be more to show soon.


Rocks found in July 2021

As you can see in this photo, some of the rocks had been on the ‘road’ for a long time and were exposed to the weather. It is therefore important that the rocks are sealed and weatherproofed if they are to be laid out in nature for others to find. High-quality clear varnish (e.g. Edding) often covers better than cheap varnish from the discounter. The rock with the funny rooster’s head was already quite weathered. I thought I should freshen up the colors a bit and coat it with varnish before it goes out again.
