Summer seems to have slipped away, while the autumn equinox brought in a harvest of apples, pumpkins, turnips and squash, to be followed by leaves as brilliant and full of color as the apples pumpkins and squash.

“In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil. And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb colour effects as from August to November.” ~ Rose G. Kingsley, The Autumn Garden, 1905
