Just Right

Inspired by Norman Haddow's comment yesterday I have included another example of stonework and food morphing into one another. This is a table we built recently of random limestone. The table originally had a cherry top. I was concerned about the cherry getting damaged with rain and extreme sun exposure so we exchanged the top for this big slab of limestone flagstone. Three of us managed to lift it onto the stone 'legs'.

There is a stunning contrast between the elegance of the place setting (and the reproduction Windsor back chairs ) and the raunchy look of the rock table. We had another meal on it last night prepared again by Colin our personal chef. The meal was delicious, and the table? ...Well as Goldilocks would say, "it was just right".

This is a good thing, because I don't think we will be moving it to a new spot in the garden for a while.
