rock walls...

I LOVE rock walls...they remind me of old secret gardens in tiny villages. We have been trying to uncover this one at our place..
 It is not really old...maybe 30 years and not very well constructed, but its a rock wall and I love rock walls.
There has been many years of blackberry brambles growing over, through and around this wall but we are slowly trying to bring it back to life.
We also have a crude rock wall/ stepway that I try to keep trimmed..
Of course it's got nothing on the beautiful rock walls in Ireland...
When I was on the Aran Islands, I couldn't believe the quantity of walls and the diversity in design...
Of course they are functional in their design as well...
...and so lovely to ride a bike through!
...o.k now back to work before the rains come again.
