First Day of Autumn

"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."
- George Eliot

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
- Albert Camus

"No Spring nor Summer Beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one Autumnal face."
- John Donne

I don't know why the picture attribution is coming through so small - but the photographer is Pisces Romance on Flickr and his page there is:

My favourite season. Great quotes!

Gorgeous! I love fall!!!

Bezzie said...

YAY!!!!!

I think I love transitional seasons--fall and spring. But since fall segues into my favorite season, winter, I love it more than spring!

Thanks for the quotes and the lovely picture.

Fall came a little early this year, but we had to turn the AC back on yesterday. Texas has two growing seasons, Spring and Fall, separated by drought and what passes for winter. So I love them both. Fall has always been my favorite.

I miss the north country right about this same time every year.

The south never "gets" fall….

Mm, yes I adore autumn usually. Here in Spain it doesn't feel quite right although it has cooled off a lot. We are going back to the Uk for a week or two this week and I'm looking forward to the smell of fallen golden leaves...mmmm
