Bright splashes of colour peeking through the browns of fall – pure magic indeed. I’m not referring to flowers that are meant to bloom specifically for autumn. Things like Chrysanthemums, colourful Michaelmas Daisies and Autumn Crocuses. I’m talking about the hardy summer blooming flowers that just won’t give up on the chance to flash showy colours as the cold nights of fall descend.
I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. (Lucy Maude Montgomery – Anne of Green Gables)
No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face. (John Donne)
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. (Albert Camus)
Autumn – the year’s last loveliest smile. (William Cullen Bryant)
Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall. (F. Scott Fitzgerald)
