Looking Back...

It is no surprise that many days I really miss the lil' store I use to have...and other days...honestly, not so much.  But if ever a season brings my anxiety about it back to the surface...it is definitely the fall of the year.  I loved the fall growing season, I loved the long days of working outside in the crisp air, I loved the smell of my store (I can still recall it when I think of it), I loved growing and picking pumpkins and the beautiful colors of the mums, I loved my annual Fall Harvest celebration which brings me to the thing I miss the most...I loved "my people"...the ones that came from far and wide to visit my special lil' place.  It was small & nothing fancy...but it was loved and nurtured by me and many others.
  I'm so thankful I had it.  
Here are just a few pictures that take me back to an extremely busy yet very happy time. 

























Happy Fall Friends...what a beautiful time of year!

Your shop looks like it was wonderful this time of fall!!! I am sure you miss the friends but not the work! lol.. I pinned the picture of the mums/cabbage in the bushel baskets to use for my shop next season!

Wow! I loved seeing all of the beautiful fall scenes! I'm sure you do miss the little shop, as you can just feel the passion you had for it, in the way you write. Glad you have such great memories and lovely photos to comfort you. :)

I must have missed that you no longer have your shop. I had always wanted to visit. Love the pictures...and this is my favorite time of year, too!

I can see why you miss it.... such a darling store, and beautiful plants.

Love your new place too, and all the special touches that you have added.
It must be nice to thoroughly enjoy the season now, instead of rushing about with the store :)

That is beautiful!!! I see water lines between the potted plants.....how do you get the water from the line to the pot??? I'm guessing little hoses, but I thought I would ask the master... I have lots of potted plants outside and would love an easier way to water them!
I am visiting today and reading backward....beautiful blog, property and home!
Blessings to you,
