Stone Love

If you appreciate mosiacs and you've never visited Jeffrey Bale's blog before, you don't know what you are missing. 
Jeffrey is a builder of natural gardens and stunning garden mosaics. 
You can just tell that he is passionate about his work; he lives it and breathes it.  

He is visiting Spain right now and taking us on tours of various sites. Look at the awesome beauty of Tarragona, Spain and how its extensive stoneworks tell the story of the 5,000 years of its being.

Check out the building colors that are peaking out from behind the wall.

Such vivid textures!

These wandering mosaic streets are made of cut limestone blocks and river cobblestones, polished by centuries and centuries of use.

Gorgeous arabesque patterns...

Be sure to check out Jeffrey's blog
He explains the details behind this ancient Spanish legacy.
