The wall is not smooth and sophisticated.
It is rough hewn with concrete slathered between stones.
It looks like the stones were in the field before the house was built
And someone sometime decided they needed a wall in front of the house
and they gathered up the stones and fit one on top of the other
and then realised it would not hold up but would fall down.
So this nameless person mixed up some concrete
and slathered it between the stones
and watched it set
and then saw sunlight stream through the gaps
and slathered some more concrete around the stones.
So the wall did not fall down.
And this someone walked away.
Job done and good enough
not perfect but then perfection had never been sought.
Time passed and muck gathered on the uneven surface.
Inside the muck seeds lay dormant and daisies grew.
