Autumnal Textures

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. ~Stanley Horowitz

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

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad. ~Edwin Way Teale

Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter. ~Carol Bishop Hipps

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~Albert Camus

No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face.
~John Donne

Thank you! I took the pictures on the way to the bus stop yesterday. And I am kind of glad that I didn't have to write anything :)
