Homage to Andy Goldsworthy

Most of the plants are now in place, taking over from the ex-lawn – but according to my ace consultant this is no longer just horticulture but Art. Specifically, that river of rocks on the right is meant to take itself literally–to make like a river, and flow.

We found the right type of rocks, which call themselves wood rocks and do indeed sometimes look like strips of fossilized wood that can be lined up in flow formation. So if the supply of sequels to Mousenet (due out November 8th) dries up temporarily, it will be because I'll be outside hour after hour, straightening rocks.
