Stonewall-1The landscaping around my new house was very Fred Flinstone:  all the flower beds were edged with field stone.  Now, I like the look of field stone in a wall, like Frost’s “Mending Wall,” or maybe a fireplace surround, but not stuck along the edge of the lawn like cake flowers.  For the last week I’ve been systematically moving the stone to a large pile.  Unlike Frost, I have no wall to build, though, so I just have to find someone who does.
