163. House with blue stones (Wallers-Trélon)

This house of blue stone is in Wallers-Trélon, the village where the blue stone is extracted. the blue stone is granite. I explained it already in the post about the church of Wallers-Trélon. This village is in the East of Avesnois, about 35 km far from here. Not far from Belgium (the frontier is in the East of Wallers-Trélon), the frontier here is about 15 km in the North. However, the stone is not so blue like on my picture but blue-grey. I have worked on the colours on Microsoft Office Power Point 2003. Here (but I say it already thousand times, the land is called the blue country in cause of the colour of the old houses. But it is also the green country in cause of the colour of its meadows.
