This wall, completed early in the spring, was started in November of 2013. Then the snow came !! After an unusually long and severe winter I returned from California and went back chopping through the ice and snow to find the wall and the rest of the building stones to try to continue to build it again.
This was late in March. In late April, the day I finished the wall, there was still snow around when I left. I thought the snow would never go away.
Anyway, I came back last week to see the site all cleaned up and landscaped and behold NO SNOW !
The doctor who owns the property wanted a retaining wall that curved around her bungalow and gave the property a rustic charm. I think she got what she wanted.
