The wall, part three

the wall 3

The first installment of dry-stacked retaining wall is nearing completion. Gaps between the stones will host small plants, a row of scrubby herbs will cap the top edge. The garden bed will be populated with vegetables in the summer, surrounded by perennials and shrubs. I am very satisfied with the results, like a big staple stitching the front and back yards together.
