"Delicious autumn..."

I heard the following quote today on the radio and wanted to share it with y'all--I feel this quite strongly not simply because it is my very favorite season, but also because my family and I have just returned from vacationing in the Great Smoky Mountains and surrounding areas.

"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."

I feel the same way. I enjoy this time of year so much, and the Smoky Mountains! Oh, it had to be wonderful. I am glad you are back from vacation, you and your family were missed.

This is my favourite time of the year because it reminded me of school starting and fresh beginnings.

Me, too, and as a collector of quotes, this one is GREAT!!

Do you know the source?

I googled it; it was George Elliot.

kim from hiraeth: So very sorry to leave ya 'hangin' there! I'd meant to post the author but clearly forgot!!!!

I think I'd like to read more of this auther, who I believe was actually a woman from the Victorian period.

That is beautifully written! I love the crisp mornings and evenings, getting out the cozy sweaters and jammies, and having long evenings with plenty of time to hang out with my sweetie pie. (That is my husband, not a pastry, I can't eat gluten.)

Becky: LOL! Best kind of sweetie pie is the non-fattening, no calories kind! :-)
