So Far So Good

So far this season the stacked stone wall I built so laboriously last summer has not fallen down, despite freezing nights and thawing days.

But the plow has not come up the driveway yet to bury it, and a long winter of expanding ice and heaving soil is still ahead of us.

But so far so good. It even looks nice in the snow.

  6. Laurrie, your snow scene is invigorating and enchanting. Too, the wall's solid stance makes a fine counterpoint to the delicate flakes. Enjoy.

  8. It looks great. I am certain it will stand up to the freeze- thaw, if you get it. Plows are another thing.

  9. I love your snow-covered wall; it looks like it will last a long, long time. Your white-laced landscape looks ready for Christmas! From afar, I am quite envious of your snow.

    1. Marguerite, the whole stone wall building story is told in a post on September 8:

      It looks okay in the end, but it was a real challenge to build : )
