Old stone walls and bluebells

I think that this particular dry stone wall could do with a wee bit of attention, but aren't the bluebells gorgeous! I particularly love the little pools of sunlight.

I couldn't resist adding a link to YouTube for this children's poem, The Old Dry Stone Wall by Ann Perrin. It's just the kind of thing which we imagine children would think when looking at a wall like this. Enjoy :)

I wonder what might live in this one!


  1. Hello,
    Thank you for your comment, not of problem for French, but you can write in your language, Yours sincerely.

    Very pretty photograph beautiful light.

  2. Came here from Pondside and delighted to see that you are local to me! I love dry stone walls too - one of things I love about living in the Peak District, but loved them equally on Dartmoor, Wales and other locations around the UK. Have had a go at it myself with reasonable success - have built a new little wall in my garden from stones left lying around the place, and have repaired several as well.

    I first learnt how to do them at Blaze Farm on the Buxton to Congleton road. And the National Stone Centre at Wirksworth also has a fabulous display of the different styles of drystone walling throughout the UK.

  3. Still loving your photos! Thanks for dropping by The Red Sweater. Hope to see you again soon!
