But that's easily fixed, just plant it with some Gas-plant (Dictamnus) ;Dhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dictamnus

Ha! My first car that I owned while in College, was a beat up Chevy Nova that I bought for something like $200 ;D

Ouch!  Bad memories.  I once had a Chevy Nova, probably the worst car I ever owned.  Got rid of it as soon as possible.

Charles, somehow I missed seeing that chimney and semp planting; I don't even remember seeing that odd (unusual) chimney there.  I'm going to have to go back and wander the grounds in more detail sometime in May at the height of spring.

By the way, I added the stone car photo at the start of this thread, for those who don't have Facebook access, and to dispel with the need to search the StoneArt web site to find it,if using the second link.
