This morning, I noticed this stone sitting under the Linden tree, now that all the leaves have fallen. It may be a marker for a pet long gone, or maybe even for a person.
Suena has been accompanying me on my adventures in the back yard. She helped me set out the garden and made herself comfortable on the tarp as I weighted it down with brick.
She even helped me discover the original well!
After a solid rain all of a sudden there was this gaping hole in the ground. So I started to enlarge it and was surprised by what I found.
Note the stone layer about two feet below the soil surface.
The stone created a square foundation for the top and the brick was laid below. At some point there was a pipe connected, but the direction is away from the house. Maybe adapted for the farm?
Some treasures from the digging.
Cleaned them up a bit.
Hope you discover many great things in 2012.
