Adobe Wall


What do you do when a tree is blocking the spot where you want to build you wall. Simple build around it. I know most wouldn't but I was happy to see this homeowner did. Here's hoping there are no walls from blocking a good week for you.

There used to be a cherry tree (dead now) like that between my parent's garden and the neighbour's garden. They built around it too. :-)

I don't have good vibes for the long-term future of this wall.

Jacob said...

That's interesting. And why not? We had a chain link fence at our old Ocala house where a tree had grown up in such a way as to swallow the fence - weird!

Marty said...

A lot of different materials used in this wall and working around that beautiful tree was very clever.

So I call a hit. Good photos. That would be a wall to be perhaps more. How many times a tree twisting due to construction. It is an interesting element in the construction of the wall. In my blog it is a flower known agricultural crops used as accompaniment to meat. They are ordinary potatoes. I'm sure you know. The origin have in America.

Lúcia said...

I'm glad to see the tree is safe! ;-)

Good for them! I like this idea and it makes an interesting looking wall.

Very inventive! Hope the smoke isn't too bad at your place.

That's the best way to respect Nature. Antique cultures did that.

Christina Klas said...

Haha. I like this. My sister actually did something quite similar in her yard although the wall she was building did not look nearly this complicated!

Alan said...

That's brilliant! Great shot!

Olga said...

I think it is very thoughtful and kind to let this tree be there.
Thank you for this photo.

Dawn said...

Nothing like working around a problem. Love that the owner did this:)

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Haha! love it Randy, good shot!

Allison said...

Good for him. My husband would have cut the poor thing down. I'm such a lover of letting things be the way they are. :)
