"I'm ready for the cold winds to blow and make the leaves blush at their touch".......my sister Libby
My Sister wrote this line the other day and I thought it was so poetic and beautiful! I am enjoying the scenic drive around the lake with the oranges, yellows, and crimsons speckled about with God's paintbrush. Autumn here really is lovely!
Here are a few lovely quotes on the season...
~"October's poplars are flaming torches lighting the way to winter"- Nova Blair
~"Don't you just love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address."
-You've Got Mail
~"No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face" - John Donne
~"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band."
Above is a vintage metal tulip chair that I picked up at an antique store around 3 years ago and finally got around to painting. I still need to spray the glossy top coat on it, but I think it looks bright and fresh. I love it with the orange mums!!
Off to an outdoor movie and bonfire at the church tonight. Hopefully someone is bringing the hot apple cider!
