Free Rocks


By expats


Shirley Tulip and Whistonlass mentioned that they need rocks…..
Help yourselves! I’m building a patio and I’ve collected these from around the meadow to start a ‘facing wall; there’s plenty more where these came from.

Hi Shirley and Terratoonie, I believe that expats is living in France so I donĀ“t think there would be any trouble with the customs...unless the customs thought they were part of the French heritage of course....but of course they are just a load of old field stones !.

They are mostly from ruined walls and tumbledown buildings...

When walking through the woods one comes across the walls of deserted hamlets with trees growing inside the old houses. The French casualties in WW1 were so great that there were too few men left to 'work the land' and many villages were abandoned and left for nature to reclaim the homes and farms....Very sad!

I'm reminded of Goldsmith's poem "The Deserted Village" except, in this case, it wasn't the greed of the wealthy that caused their demise....

In my commune there are 378 souls; in 1913 there were 2886......
