OCTOBER DAY


IMG_4932 copy

Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love — that makes life and nature harmonize. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one’s very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit. 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, letter to Miss Lewis, 1st October 1841

    1. Thanks, Jane. I put that copyright on there because I posted this picture first on Tumblr. People tend to steal things on there :) I took this pic ~ it's actually Kelly's leaf bouquet that she made, leaf by leaf, that Knox brought to her, one by one, from the yard while we sat on the swing out back. I thought it was really pretty and had to click a pic :)
