Have a Happy Sunday!!

Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.
-- Albert Camus
And we still have some green in the wooded areas!
Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile.
-- William Cullen Bryant

Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.
-- Samuel Butler

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 agree, Autumn is the grandest time, a time of cool crisp air, foggy lakes and migrating birds ... in the analogy, fall is indeed the time when years of experience can bear it's fruit. What a wonderful, thoughtful post, Sylvia ... Enjoy this day of rest :)

That middle tree is so majestic. I wonder how old it is? It has the perfect spot along the shore.

It is so good to finally be looking at your beautiful pictures again. My post explains it all. You birds make me think of the flight I am taking...learning to accept what I can do and cannot and not feel ashamed. Your posts always make me smile. I am grinning right now. g

I love these shots, Sylvia - that first one is so lush with so many shades of green, and the birds in the last one are perfect. I love autumn with its crisp mornings, breaking out the sweatshirts again and thinking about the first snow. I hope you're having a great weekend!

Wishing you a wonderful week,

The flight of the birds. Well-done, Mrs. Hitchcock! :)

Autumn is certainly beautiful but I think Mr. Camus is doing some withful thinking with the "every leaf is a flower," bit! Heh, heh. We don't have worry about such stuff down thisaway! Hope your Sunday is the kickoff to a great week!

Such beauty to feast the eyes on! Although, I am not quite ready to see our trees bare. If only fall would last longer!

Autumn is in the air. One day full of wind and rain, the next day beautiful sunshine...
Have a great day and thanks for your visit!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
