The red and yellow stick is 1 metre long, for scale.


We already tried to see this standing stone some years ago, but the previous time we gave up because in the yard of the house where the stone is the owners were having a party or something of the kind, and we didn't want to disturb them. This time the owner granted us the permission to see it.
The stone is 2.65 metres tall, 70 centimetres wide and 55 centimetres thick, and the upper part presents some grooves that run down vertically for about 60 centimetres. To me it looks like a closed tulip.
