Fruits of Autumn

Autumn_005

“Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes.  Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.”

Samuel Butler ~ Victorian author who published a variety of works, including the Utopian satire Erewhon (1835 – 1902)

    I really wish we had Fall color here in the SF Bay in more places – – but just today did I hear the sound of rustling leaves for the first time…I love autumn…
