  1. I'm fascinated by dry stone walls, how they manage to stand for so long, it's a real craft.

    1. It is indeed, Jo. When you see the miles of it in the Dales it must have taken forever to build them

  2. At work I am surrounded by ancient stone walls, one collapsed recently which they think was built by the monks before the Cathedral was built! Months of work to put each piece back now as it is an ancient monument. Beautiful things. Chel

    1. It is beautiful Chel and must be home to all manner of wildlife

  3. Yes, you have to admire the skill of the craftsmen who build those drystone walls. Here in Hampshire we usually have hedges instead.

  7. Is the yellow thing in the photos a fungus or a moss?

  8. So happy to see I'm not the only one who can spend hours perusing the plant (and in my case animal) life to be found on an old stone wall. My family call it my wall fetish! Oh, and I can build drystone walls too :D

  9. Hi Sue, great shots of the mosses and lichens! I really admire the great stone walls that seem to be mostly in Ireland or the UK. We have nothing of the sort here. Cheers, Jenni

    1. They are a particular feature of the Yorkshire Dales Jenni - it's a protected landscape so hopefully they will stay.

    1. I've just decided to have a Wordless Wednesday to use photos that often languish in a folder, Tanya. I'd really like to find a Wordless Wednesday list that focuses on nature to join.
