Some people get flocks of flamingos placed in their yards, I got a flock of (ceramic) sheep! Aren’t they cute?
Tomorrow is the Fall Equinox. Cheers!
But the air’s so appetizin’; and the landscape through the hazeOf a crisp and sunny morning of the airly autumn daysIs a pictur’ that no painter has the colorin’ to mock—When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder’s in the shock. – James Whitcomb Riley
This is my favorite season – the pumpkins are piling up at the farmstands and in neighbor’s yards; the trees have a nice deep blush on them today; our winterberries have a bumper crop on them this year and should make the birds happy through the winter. What are you doing to celebrate Fall? I hope knitting or weaving are two of your activities – come by the shop for inspiration, and look at our Fall Class Schedule on the Community Page – we’re adding new classes weekly.
If you’re in the neighborhood, this weekend is the Fall Arts and Crafts Festival at Old Deerfield – just 2.5 miles north of Sheep & Shawl on Rtes 5/10. Also, Saturday only, is the Annual Honey Festival at Warm Colors Apiary in South Deerfield. Two wonderful events close by. I hope I’ll see you!
