The cross sculpture/reflective area is now finished.

One of the things I wanted in my landscape was a sculpture.  Not an fancy type, but a more rustic and rugged type.  I chose a cross to be my sculpture because it carries with it a strong significance and meaning to me.  Although it is not the “thing” that means anything, but what Jesus did for me and others.  I wanted this area to be a place you could see from the inside of the home, on the deck, and from the fire pit.  I set it up so that at each place you can see a different angle of the sculpture.  It also has a stone seat and the small platform of flagstone is surrounded by boulders (which I moved by myself and it was very difficult).  The stones don’t look big but they were over three hundred pounds each.  Here are the pictures.

Finished.  The cross will be planted just behind the hacked down fern in the mid to upper left of the pic
