Saturday Photo: Snow and Stones

To give the front garden a little more interest in early spring and in winter when not much is growing, I built a couple of inukshuit from the rocks which apparently were the riprap from when the house was constructed in 1912. I've never been able to make the elegant human forms Inuit do, but I've always liked the idea that the cairns are intended to show the way or to welcome people.

By mid-December in normal years the little constructions are covered by snow, but with the small snow of this week, they look quite lovely.
