“Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile.”
William Cullen Bryant
"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
"Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree."
"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."
"Summer is already better, but the best is autumn. It is mature, reasonable and serious, it glows moderately and not frivolously...It cools down, clears up, makes you reasonable..."
Valentin, Finnish writer
"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."
Autumn - my favorite time of year. Each leaf is a visual reminder of God's perfect creation. Mums. my birth flower. I didn't like them much until recently. Have their colors become more radiant? Or have I learned to love their beauty? Two strays enjoying the warm rays of sunshine in my planter on top of the ivy that I've cultivated so diligently. It's okay. Have a blessed week.
