Art happens to live in a most idyllic setting, where ducks float on the adjacent pond...
...he works from his home, which makes my task much more pleasurable than paying a visit to an office complex in the city.
After the windstorm of the last few days...many of the maples were missing a lot of their leaves. At our place, we are missing an entire tree! One of our 'red sunset maples' split down the middle...there is now a giant hole to remind us of where a tree once stood. I am now on a mission to find a fifteen foot replacement...since the missing tree is one of many that lined our driveway, and is quite conspicuous by it's absence.
I passed by an entire field of red sunset maples...in nice rows, waiting to be dug. They looked to be well over twenty feet tall...a little more than I need.
Everywhere, the farmers were cutting their last crop of grass or chopping corn. As the saying goes...we must 'make hay while the sun shines'!
I took a photo on the run...but I'll be back to buy some pumpkins before the weekend.
On my way home I stopped by my favorite garden shop...it's a wonderful place to get inspired for fall decor.
My joyride ended much too soon...but my philosophy of finding some way to make business a pleasure paid off.
I have a little visitor in pink this morning...who would like Grammy to come do some visiting. Her mommy is not well today...so keep her in your prayers.
