Dug out a rock from the dirt pile to put in the garden between the newly transplanted fruit trees.

Then it was a matter of cleaning off a million years worth of dirt.

Its fractured, so I get to see inside. The outside is a purple colour but the inside is a conglomerate of rounded rock. So that tells me that the smaller rocks were part of a shoreline or a river bed. Cool.

Well you can position it as best you want, but in the end the rock will go where it wants to go.

Not quite how it was to be positioned but it will have to do.
