Even though we have mentally been in winter mode this month gearing up for the holiday season, today is the last astrolonimical day of Fall. Tomorrow's solstice kicks off the official start of winter as the day with the fewest hours of sunlight for the year. For me, this is a happy seasonal milestone because it means we can now start looking forward to the days getting longer and longer again, and more time to play outside.
While we had underwhelming Fall foliage for this area, we did get to have an extended warm period....a summer encore full of blooms, flora and fauna with days mild enough to sit out on a patio or by a fire pit. Then, in true New England fashion, just as we started getting comfortable without jackets, we suddenly shifted right into snow.
Here are some Fall images of current projects. Stay tuned for more updates as these landscapes continue to be developed.
