For me it is nice, it is a construction made of stone, but what do you think is it?. Is not only decoration in a garden, it is also practise.

It is very popular in Spanish gardens, even though people don't use it. I would imagine that you have also in your country.

Is it a well, Mariae? I don't see a pump, however so perhaps a basin to collect rain water for washing or watering the garden. I do like those old stone walls.

I'd say a well, too. And I agree with Susan - it's the stone walls that fascinate me.

Yes, it is a well, as you said. It has a wooden lid or cover because would be dangerous.

If you like stone walls here are plenty of them. I will show you more.

I like the stone well and the stone Wall.
And the variegated holly? growing next to the well.

I am a fan of stone walls also, and the last photo is my favourite. Does that lovely old building have a tile roof? I love those too! I would be very happy if I had a stone structure like that well in my garden...

How charming, Mariae! Stone has the advantage of being naturally beautiful and enhancing most anything it comes close to.
