A little Autumn . . .

 "Delicious autumn! My soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns!"
George Elliot

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

“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

“Ho! for the leaves that eddy down, Crumpled yellow and withered brown, Hither and yonder and up the street And trampled under the passing feet; Swirling, billowing, drifting by, With a whisper soft and a rustling sigh, Starting aloft to windy ways, Telling the coming of bonfire days. ”
Grace Strickler Dawson
“October gave a party; The leaves by hundreds came - The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples, And leaves of every name. The Sunshine spread a carpet, And everything was grand, Miss Weather led the dancing, Professor Wind the band. ”
George Cooper

I love autumn, too! Usually we don't see the trees change that much though in So Cal. :(
