The stone walls of New England and, in this case, Rhode Island farms are stories unto themselves. Stones found in fields stacked and arranged into walls delineating property. Simple, natural, and brilliant.

What I have observed over time is that the story does not end after building the wall. The story continues from season to season. And in Autumn, the annual story reaches its denouement.

Autumn is when the walls become decorated. Gourds and pumpkins appear. Their backdrop is the corn stalks of the seasonal harvest and the foliage on the trees. And the story continues as it prepares to witness another journey through the seasonal year.
