So as explained in my earlier post today, after removing the big ass piece of metal from its landlocked position a few feet below the surface of the earth in the backyard, I threw in the towel because there didn’t seem much point in moving all the earth I’d removed.

Not that it looked much different before I started burrowing, but the thought of that gaping hole just messed with me until I just couldn’t leave it looking like that another minute.

Entirely cosmetic and structurally unusound? Absolutely! But I like it, and at least it gives some focality to the space.
