“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” ~ Albert Einstein
One morning last week I was driving down a road I’d never yet traveled. Right at the cusp of the change of seasons, I wasn’t quite ready to wave goodbye to summer, yet we’d just passed the date on the calendar that said fall had arrived. The business that I came upon caught my eye due to it’s close proximity to the road. What’s not to like about a red barn with plants and other garden accoutrements? I thought, I think I’ll stop.
I was greeted by Dawn, a very pleasant shopkeeper who had arrived just before me. She was opening up the doors for business. “Come on in,” she said in a friendly tone. I’d only taken a quick peak when I asked if I could take some pictures. I am a writer, I said and what I am seeing is visually stimulating.
“Go right ahead, take as many photos as you wish,” she said, thanking me for my comments and telling me the barn was 300 years old.
By the way, the name of the business is Callahan Gardens Studio. They are landscapers and naturally their artistry of prettying up places with flowers and plants is on their to-do list every day. They also install garden hard scapes, do pond maintenance and cleaning, large tree removal and more!
Before hard frost hits observe the chyrsanthemums, the fall asters, the golden rod, the mahogany-colored sedum and the helenium along the highways and byways. The leaves have already begun their showcase of an autumn palette of russets, maroon, orange, browns, sienna, reds and yellows. Enjoy!
