It was a long day in the shop with little news to report. We’re still in the process of finalizing the biggest deal to date for our little shop, and I’m so ready to tell you about it I could bust! But I can’t quite yet. So, this morning when we woke up we took the dogs for a freezing cold walk and discovered this:
Almost overnight, all the ginkgo trees in our neighborhood put on their bright golds and began shedding like crazy and I’m completely in love with them. The hardwoods are the minority in this part of the state since we mostly have lanky, needly pines lining the highways and surrounding the homes in the county, but here in town… We’ve got the ginkgo trees. And that’s enough to make me really excited about getting back to New England in a few weeks.
