"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."
~ Elizabeth Lawrence
My wreath is hung awaiting your knock on my door during this favorite season. I will welcome you in with a cup of hot apple cider and we can enjoy all the things that make this a special time of year.
"October's the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down -
October is red
And golden and brown."
~ Can Teach Songs
Can you take some time out to join me? I would love to hear what your favorite things about October are?
"The gilding of the Indian summer mellowed the pastures far and wide.
The russet woods stood ripe to be stripped, but were yet full of leaf.
The purple of heath-bloom, faded but not withered, tinged the hills...
Fieldhead gardens bore the seal of gentle decay; ... its time of
flowers and even of fruit was over."
~ Charlotte Brontë
