Delightful Present

This model house was built by folk in our town. It was a 90th birthday present to a lady who had lived in the original almost all of her life.

The Black House was built several years ago in Canada, on the Landman farm during a  Dry Stone Festival. At the time the main plant was Sedum. Now several species are doing well and these Kids seem to be having a great time.

Building in Croatia

I was delighted to see this photo of a drystone building sent by my friend Boris Cok.  This structure is in Croatia and is a corbelled building very similar to the Trulli found in the South of Italy.
