The gentle days of autumn

This month has been a beautiful slide from summer into the peaceful season of fall. Around the shop and garden, time and temperatures are transforming the landscape. The sculptures are changing with the leaves. Flowers continue to bloom, including spiderwort and purple coneflowers. The land could use some rain, though. Maybe this weekend?
