La Costa Avenue Garden Migmatite

Migmatites and other high-grade metamorphic rocks are popular garden stones because of their dramatic features and textures.  Today we have a couple of pictures from the front yard of someone's home along La Costa Avenue in Leucadia, California.
We have a nice migmatite in the center of the image with well defined folds.  The surrounding stones are granodiorite most likely quarried from a location in the Southern California Batholith.
Another migmatite from the same front yard with a different texture than the above picture.
