Maestro In Stone Finis

A couple of weeks ago Daniel the Stone Magician completed the fitted dry-stack wall leading to the root cellar and defining my usual parking space.  Watching him shape and fit 500-plus pound rocks with the patience and skill of a surgeon was an awe inspiring moment.

I am not sure if 15 tons of rock can be considered “lovely,” but if so this would certainly qualify.  It is a new focal point for the homestead, and when I get the arched bridge done across the two creeks that convene there it will be pretty spectacular.

Mrs. Barn has her eyes set on the soon-to-be-finished plateau above the wall for dwarf pear trees and wild flowers.  Meanwhile I have to level the ground in front of the wall with a pick-axe and shovel.

Stay tuned.
