Haughmond Hill Stones

Just enjoyed a slow ramble on Haughmond Hill just outside Shrewsbury. Near the top we came upon a real surprise – three beautiful  stone blocks each textured, worked and marked in different ways but linked to each other. They felt so right – happy in their environment and adding to it richly.

Although the sculptures are worked by the hand of man they fit within their “habitat”, their colours, textures and the materials from which they are carved.

Early autumn is the ideal time to visit them as their colours perfectly reflect the colours of the season.

It will be interesting to see how they weather and to watch out for lichens and mosses taking up residence on their surfaces.

I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
