Because I've lived here for decades & have spent a lot of time walking the neighborhood, I like to think I do appreciate the details. I especially like passing a park in the neighborhood that is home to generations of western bluebirds.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE stone walls! Great pictures. Thanks for taking us on your walk. You might be interested in reading Stone by Stone: The Magnificent History in New England's Stone Walls by Robert Thorson. I read it a few months ago and it will tell you more about stone walls than you thought it was possible to know. Fascinating read.


In Wisconsin (because of rocks left by the ice sheets) the farmers moved them the shortest distance in a field which was to the middle so you'll see piles of rocks in the middle of the old fields. Occasionally there will be a really large rock under the pile known as a leverright as in 'leave it right there'.
