November at the Tree Farm
November brings the bustle. Gathering wreath greens, cutting winterberry, putting the final touches on the Christmas shop. But amidst the pace of all the preparation, November offers up scenes of stillness too. A field of frosted trees in the morning. The last warmth of a low sun. An empty lot on a quiet afternoon.
We crave those spare moments, however brief, to remind ourselves what the upcoming season is all about.
