“In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil. And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb colour effects as from August to November.” — Rose G. Kingsley, The Autumn Garden, 1905
“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all.” —– Stanley Horowitz
We don’t usually talk about how our photos were taken, but if you are wondering, yes this is a photo. It was taken from the window of a moving train. The only editing done to this photo was cropping out some of the black background from inside the train and resizing it for the internet. While it may not be a perfect photo in the technical sense, we like the effect.
“A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air.” — Eric Sloane
“To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.” — George Santayana
As I grow older I find myself becoming more and more in tune with the changing of the seasons. When I left for the grocery store in the early morning there was a nip in the air. At the store I found myself yawning and grabbing everything I could think of to make soup. Finally I realized cool mornings, all I want to do is sleep, cook and eat… MUST BE FALL!
Yes, it is. Time to put away the summer clothes and bring out the winter, clean house, rake leaves, and winterize the car. Please don’t get so busy you forget to look around you. It’s gorgeous out there!
