“ These extraordinary autumn days! A godlike beauty to the countryside that cannot be described, and very nearly cannot be experienced ~ it is so amazing. One walks or rides along in a veritable daze. Surely there is no season quite like this… ” ~ Joyce Carol Oates
Good Sunday morning, dear friends. Tomorrow is a special day, the first day of glorious autumn. Such a dazzling season, isn’t it? I believe at this time of year, we all anticipate cooler days and the magnificent beauty autumn holds. So find your coffee or tea and come along for a short stroll through ‘autumn unfolding.’
“Autumn that year painted the countryside in vivid shades of scarlet, saffron, and russet, and the days were clear and crisp under harvest skies.” ~ Sharon Kay Penman
“The oak leaves above were already gilded, autumn coming to the woods like a king in a legend, touching all the trees with brightness. The rays coming through those leaves were gold on gold.” ~ Sarah Rees Brennan
“Autumn ~ that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness ~ that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.” ~ Jane Austen
“Autumn evokes different feelings for everyone…As the energy of summer slows down, and frosty winter is getting closer, a beautiful autumn day is truly special. Cool morning air, grass wet with dew, and those amazing warm golden colors spreading through the trees…” ~ Vicki Chicago~Marsh
“To say it was a beautiful day would not begin to explain it. It was that day when the end of summer intersects perfectly with the start of fall.” ~ Ann Patchet
Dear friends, thanks so much for visiting and I hope you enjoyed the stroll.
Wishing you and yours a beautiful day.
“May you walk through the world and
know its beauty all the days of your life.”
