930. The spirits of the air live on the smells of fruit; and joy, with pinions light, roves round the gardens, or sits singing in the trees. ~William Blake

And November sad,—a psalm
Tender, trustful, full of balm,
Thou must breathe in spirits calm.
~Caroline May

I like spring, but it is too young. I like summer, but it is too proud. So I like best of all autumn, because its tone is mellower, its colours are richer, and it is tinged with a little sorrow. Its golden richness speaks not of the innocence of spring, nor the power of summer, but of the mellowness and kindly wisdom of approaching age. It knows the limitations of life and its content. ~Lin Yutang

I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit. ~Leviticus 26:4  ✝

  1. There are things in all seasons that I like, but by far late Fall into early Spring is my favorite time of year. To watch the beautiful colors of fall fade into the first snow fall of winter that covers all with a pristine blanket of white thrills me so. Then comes the thaw of early spring and the delight of seeing the first tiny heads of new growth in the gardens is a true delight.

  2. Beautiful Natalie. I love the colors of Autumn also, Mother Nature showing her best dress before winter sheds her dandruff over the world and shuts us down in our small environments, to wait for rebirth in spring. Spring is nice, because of the new colors, but so young, so fresh, childlike and not so much for older generations now. Autumn is my season. Readying myself for the winter of my life cycle, but enjoying an endless, hopeful Autumn filled colorful life until God deems my work is finished here and calls me home. HUGS. A.
