Stone Monolith?

Sorry noseypotter, nowhere as good as your sculptures! Need more pebbles in the background and maybe some planting inbetween the stones.

Looks like the pile of stones known as a CAIRN.
Maybe look it up on internet and tell me if you agree! :o)

Thanks Terratoonie. I can now show off a bit of extra knowledge when friends look round the garden........

'In modern times cairns are often erected as landmarks. In ancient times they were erected as sepulchral monuments, or used for practical and astronomical uses.' (Wikipedia)

Yes, that would impress as you take visitors on a garden tour ~
Here is our CAIRN ~

Now all you need is a Cairn Terrier as well, but I reckon he might water it for you. Lol. :o)
