Nature's junk is the best-- for crying out loud

This is a project of mine that I did last year, but I'm posting today in honor of Palm Sunday.  The passage in the Bible describing Jesus' triumphal entry says that even if the PEOPLE remained silent, the STONES would cry out. I always thought that would be a funny image and wanted to capture that idea -- junk style, of course! 

So I headed to the woods behind my house to collect some rocks, and while there found some of nature's most beautiful "junk" (all the free stuff isn't found on the curb, you know), including a big patch of moss.  With a felt tip marker I wrote different expressions on the rocks, added the other things I found, and set it all on a silver try.  Kinda cool, I think.  Happy Palm Sunday!
