Rock on
While replanting the garden and several fruit trees I also did some stone work. Last year we had to redrill the well and the big drillrig left a marred yard with an unsightly wellhead sticking out next to my garden. I loaded some stones into my pickup truck and started building a stone well cover. The Catskills are famous for the granite, blue stone and stone walls. Stone work is part of your garden, because 50% of your dirt is rock.  It turns out to be a great medium to create art. Here a a few local samples: David Goldin,
Opus40, Andy Goldsworthy. A small well cover takes several hours to construct with plenty of time to think. In the midst of the construction my mind started to wander and suddenly I was about climb my rock pile, just like the rock heaps on the top of the Swiss
mountains as a young boy.  Later on, by chance I started to look through my photo album and found the perfect memory link.
