Peace Out performed on October 2nd at the final concert in Flat Rock.
Their music is an eclectic blend of folk, country, African
and Celtic. It was a great occasion to listen to some
good music and look at the audience - kids,
retirees and young folk.

This little building really showcases its business of landscape design.
Regional architecture (sort of), two water features, accessible design,
and of course landscape design.

An interesting fence and gate at a house in
Hendersonville, NC. Gravel drive, nice plantings,
natural materials and a suggestion of mystery beyond...
The fence at the neighbor's house - gravel drive,
stone wall, plantings and the fence repeated. It all seems
to go together very well.

Mike's on Main Street in Hendersonville. NC is a coffee/sandwich
shop that is located in an old pharmacy/soda shop. The prices are
very reasonable and the decor is interesting.
Soda counter with stools, booths and a case with old
pharmacy bottles and containers....

Each year Asheville does a good job with numerous fairs and festivals.
The Lexington Avenue Arts & Fun Festival (LAAF) takes place
on North Lexington Avenue and engages the community with
art, crafts, childrens activities, food and music.
This group was very good with a bohemian/indie/rock genre.
One of the couples dressed for the festival doing
their part to "keep Asheville weird."

The Bele Chere festival took place in Asheville this past weekend.
Lots of people, arts and music. This group was very
entertaining and featured local musicians. There were also
some big acts like Toubab Krewe; good vibes...
The ever popular Drum Circle was set up outside the Lexington Avenue Brewery
(Lab) on Lexington Avenue. They had some great chicken/pork

I recently saw this vehicle in downtown Asheville which is
still under construction. The chap working on it
said that it is a house, albeit a very small one. It could be
used for camping or a a temporary abode by someone
who is able to get by without the trappings of society.
Or it could be used as a small office.

The Montford Area Historical District has many fine examples of
historical architectural styles as well as some new interpretations on
design. This house has Arts and Crafts as well as Asian influences.
I especially like the deep roof overhangs which negate the need
for gutters. Not too sure about the curved wall on the left though.

The River Arts Studios were open this weekend in addition to the food and
drinking establishments in the area. Wedge Brewing Company has an
excellent outdoor drinking/eating location with a "fence"
that is a work of art.
