PART TWO: The Soaking Garden

For years, I've hated all those blocks stacked around the garden. And then one day, someone said to me, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down that wall!" and then proceeded to start tumbling the columns into the dirt. But what to do with all those blocks?
I really had no desire to haul them far from where they fell, so I decided just to level off an area and set them on a flat area to create a private patio area where I can put patio furniture and my farm-style ofuro.
No concrete in case I ever want to move them. They don't even need to be perfectly even.
Sixty-four 32lb. cinder blocks--who needs a gym?
One pile of block down and one to go. I wonder if I'll find any more 'artifacts'.
