Last fall when the tree fell in our backyard, it pummeled a part of the property that it seemed the previous owners had used as a dumping ground. In its wild fall, the trunk of the tree shifted a large stump and revealed a few pieces of blue flagstone that we believe was leftover from our home’s construction in the ’50’s. The flagstone is one of our favorite architectural features of this house; it’s used on the front facade and also forms our living room fireplace, so to have a few extra pieces to see and handle in the raw, unused form is kind of special, especially if we ever wanted to take a few pieces to match it up to other stone or whatever. Quarry nerds.
Anyways, we thought it was just a few pieces until we started digging again yesterday. And digging, and digging, and digging, and we’re still not done, but so far, lots of flagstone.
Fire pit? Cap for our living room planter? Stairs to the lower level of the barn? Endless potential for reuse. Ideas? Do share.
