Rock Walls


I love rock walls. They are quintessentially New England. I would love to have a beautiful rock wall in front of my house. But alas... I do not! These pictures were taken on one of my favorite streets not far from my house. It is one of my happy places. Virtually every house on the street has a beautiful rock wall in front of it. Some of the houses are quite grand, but most are average-sized homes. The rock walls just make them look stately and soooo charming. And with all the leaves on the ground, it's so autumn-y, it makes me want to curl up with a hot chocolate...hmmm...I hear the cocoa calling ;-)

Oh those photos made me drool! I love rock walls too. I am Scottish and my dad claims it is part of our heritage to be dry stone dykers :) He builds rock walls all over his property. I have yet to take up the hobby but can see someday when I have more time getting into it.

That is awesome. Not so many rock walls in Texas...all of our houses look the same. BORING!

Wow those rock walls are awesome! And your right they are found more back east. I remember seeing lots of these beauties when I lived back in NY in 93'.
