How could you not like an post about the use and love of stone. George has written a nice piece about stone, moving stone, and how stone works in his garden.
What I especially liked was his mention of The Forgotten Art of Building a Stone Wall by Curtis Fields. If my memory serves correct this was the 1st book on stone in my library. George is right, it is a small, clean simple book, but if you love stone, and want to build walls it is an indispensable tool in you stone building toolbox.
Thanks George and keeping moving those stones. Nice use of standing stones, look to the last photo in the post.
I won't mind if you share this:
