The Beauty 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

"The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly
changes from the summer cottons into its winter wools."
-   Henry Beston, Northern Farm

"Listen!  the wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!"
-  Humbert Wolfe

"Autumn is a season followed immediately by looking forward to Spring."
-  Anonymous

Oh yes, Autumn here is still in the 70's but we know it is going to get cold soon.

Glorious pics as usual, Sylvia. I like all the different colors in the first shot. Amazing view. That must be fairly close to where you live, right?

Have a great Wednesday!

Hi Sylvia, Just can't get enough of your wonderful views out over the water. Great!!! And that last quote: "Autumn is a season followed immediately by looking forward to Spring." Isn't that perfect! Neat post, as always. Have a great day Sylvia!

Autumn is my very favourite time of year. I like all the seasons really but Autumn is very special.

You should be abel to guess that I like the last one the best - always like pictures with something other than just a sunset.

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.
