Basking in the sun

This archway and wall was built by students at an indoor workshop at Ground Covers Unlimited, northeast of Toronto, about five years ago. I taught several classes there that blustery winter with students from all over Canada. It was a lovely warm cozy environment for working. We had music playing, lots of working space, and tons of mossy field stones (gathered the previous fall from the property) to work with. Each weekend the new class took the previous student wall apart and rebuilt it.  The wall in this photo was the last one we built there. Sandy and Ted, the owners of the property like it so much they have never taken it down, even though I'm sure they could use the space. I happened to be visiting there recently and was pleased to see it still basking contently in the sunlight. It was like visiting an old friend.
