Rock & roll

We decided to stay at home this weekend and work in the yard.   There’s much to do.   Monte worked on preparing the compost pile.  I cleared some old firewood, bricks and limestone that had been cluttering up a future flower bed along the fenceline near the shop.   This is a shot of my growing stone wall — a work in progress.   Everytime I find a limestone block I add it to the collection.

One of the stones I moved from the fenceline to this pile had a surprise under it…a tarantula.    My second one encountered at Deer Track, I must say.    Again, had I been thinking I would have grabbed the camera and gotten a picture of him, as it was a truly startling moment to remember.   However, Monte came over with Mr. Shovel and before I thought of it, the moment was gone.    It’s just as well.

My rock wall is much more pleasant to look at.
