Stonewalled

Glendalough

I’d love to watch someone build one of these some day. They truly fascinate me. How do you pick the stones so that they sit together just so? These look so casually piled together, so higgeldy piggedly, like you could just tip them over, and yet they’ve been there, solid and sturdy, for hundreds of years. I love the way moss and tufts of grass grow between the gaps, I love their texture, their colour. For a bunch of stones, aren’t they just really pretty to look at?

Ok enough of my weird fascination with dry stone walls. One or two more Glendalough pics coming up over the next few days.
