We gathered rocks from icy hedgerows last week for building walls with. We wrapped them so they'd not be all caked in snow when the time came to try to use them.
Yesterday morning we returned, and it kinda felt like Christmas.
We both got excited when we saw the wintry 'gift' pile of rocks lying in the snow, waiting for us to unwrap and start playing with.
It's little things like this that make off-season walling a wee bit magical.
