Autumn

“For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. 
For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.”
-   Edwin Way Teale

“I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. 
So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.
-  Nathaniel Hawthorne

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Once more the liberal year laughs out
O’er richer stores than gems or gold:
Once more with harvest song and shout
Is nature’s boldest triumph told.”
-   John Greenleaf Whittier

  1. Beautiful. I love fall, but I would rather have it be summer. XD I love the beautiful colors of fall, but I don’t like the coming cold. And it gets really cold! Plus I forgot my boots this semester. >.<
    Loved the quotes! Awesome!

    • Fall is just great. I can completely understand where you are coming from though having lived in an area most of my life where the summer was so short (Boston). I’ve grown to appreciate the Fall though here. Today it is 92 which is actually cool for Phoenix.

      Oh no! You’ll have to run home to grab those boots. You might need those soon. :)

  2. autumn is here in the next 2 weeks I think, the summer say adios…..but it is o.k. we need the four seasons….but bad is the winter-I don´t like him. Like your shots-mostly the pumpkins shot-love the colour orange :-)

    Ive come to realise lately how much I love the seasons. They make the year so much more exciting :) can’t wait for autumn to start over here, and by the time it does, i’ll have moved into my new house at university! scary!

  4. It’s one of my favorite seasons!

  5. What a gorgeous blog. I am so excited for fall. The leaves are usually beautiful on the mountain. Your pictures made me long for it to come soon. I love the orange colors and the beauty! Thank you for such a lovely post.

  6. The second photo is great – I can almost smell the leaves and hear the crunching noise as I walk though them!

  7. Autumn is one of my favorites because; I love the awesome changes in the nature, with all those gorgeous colours in the leaves, red, orange, yellow. I just love the cooler temperature and the darker mornings. :)

  8. I am still waiting for it to really cool off….
