Yep pigfaces would look lovely in between the crevices of those rocks. Speaking of which, the multi-coloured pigface I was wanting to share with you from ages ago has carked it. It must be a bi-annual variety. :cry:

Oh, I have the space, and the perfect spot for it. I just don't have the 20 strong men it would take to put the rocks in place. :roll:

when I was away last week got a glimpse of a garden that made use of the huge granite boulders intrinsic to the region. couldn't get a picture as we were wizzing past at 100kms an hour on the bike, but would have loved to stop and have a look. But from what I saw there were splashes of bright colour tucked between and arranged over these massive rocks.

the size of these rocks there would be no way you could remove them - probably more underground than above! they just made creative use of what was there.
