Our cousin William from Ohio was staying with us for the last 10 days, and one of the projects he tackled, with Sarah’s help, was building a stone wall around our garden. We have a tall fence that keeps the deer out, but there is a 10-inch gap along the bottom that lets rabbits in. Of course, we could have just closed the gap with chicken wire, but a stone wall is so much lovelier! More pictures to come! He and Sarah got the rocks from rock slides along our driveway and from one of the several pit mines on our property. He also fixed the garden gate so it now closes properly, and put in flagstones at the garden entry. He and Sarah did beautiful work!
So we have the Black Hills Gothic.
Enjoyed the descriptions and the comparison with the well knownGothic painting. Difficult for the two of them to look stern and stoic! Cute! This is something that all of you will remember, and nice to have your written story to pass on to future generations!
