Thanks for the high praise. And I hadn't got to comment soon been fighting covid that last week it has not been a Pickwick by any means
Hope you're feeling better now. Covid is seriously bad news. My youngest stepdaughter was left with balance issues after it, and has been walking with a cane for the past 6 months.

MIL got it and it kicked her ass for 10 days. Then she got better for a week before it came back and kicked her ass again for another week.

Heal up and get well soon. What were your first symptoms? I'm sitting here w/sniffles,scratchy throat and clearing my throat wondering if I have it? Prolly not and I need to load the wood into the woodshed so no time for it :)

One of the outstanding projects to the pond was finishing the bogs exterior. While it's still not quite 100 % I built a stone wall out from the mafia blocks about a foot . And as the wall was built the void was filled with rocks concrete. What ever I could get my hands on that was not biodegradable. Like the left over mortar and concrete from when the pond was built " no snakes in this wall"
The 6 foot height was dried to 4'-6" as a dry stack at 6 feet tall is a hole other animal to insure it doesn't topple over onto someone.
Here's to stone walls

Looks good. I suppose with the mafia blocks, the stone just has to hold itself up and not actually retain anything?

correct it only is holding basically a window box sorta speak . i lined the trench with fabric and then a section of rubber so the plants would not need constant watering.

Well, of course, they're not going anywhere with you sitting in that chair watching them all the time! ;-)
