  Bev's "Cactus Patch" Rock Garden

The native Yucca cactus plants were uncoverd by Bev whenclearing the property. These plants, with unique tenacles, became the focal point of her rock garden. The rocks were found in the woods and fields and removed so Jim could cut the pastures. Instead of piling these rocks back into the woods they were recycled into the garden. Their beauty and metaphorphic, igneous and sedimentary attributes make them objects of beauty. Granite, sandstone and quartz blends are the most common.

According to the N.C. Geological Survey, Sunny P Farm is in the Carolina Slate Belt. The belt refers to a region of low-grade metamorphosed volcanic rock characterized by slaty cleavages crossing North Carolina in a general southwest to northeast direction. The rocks in the belt are from the Pre-Cambrian period.

The Pre-Cambrian period is that long stretch of geological time (the longest actually) that starts from the formation of the Earth up to the beginning of the Cambrian - about 4.6 billion years ago. Just to give you an idea how old this is, dinosaurs did not come into existence until the late Triassic (230 Ma). They lived up to the end of the Cretaceous period (65 Ma).

Note: Ma stands for Megannum, where mega means million and annum means year. Hence Ma is equivalent to millions of years ago
