Millstones & Caldrons All Under One Roof
When the nights get chilly, the inevitable changing of the leaves start to take place. This process symbolizes one season starting and the other slowing down. But it is the fascinating, scientific part that often gets overlooked. When the sugar produced in the leaves (through photosynthesis) during the day doesn’t flow back into the trunk of the tree, it remains in the leaves and as the chlorophyll (the green pigment of the leaf) diminishes, it displays the color of sugar.
And speaking of sugar, take a look at these awesome caldrons once used in the production of sugar. With such a bewitching look to them, the fall season is a perfect time to consider how to incorporate one of these unusual pieces into your landscape.
And if you missed the piece on milling around, we just love the use of millstones in the landscape as well. Fall is the perfect time to be thinking design! Paul Rand’s words wrap up this Friday thought. “Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated.”
P.S. Pumpkin tips to be coming soon.
