How’s about this mushroom then? I thought it definitely looked like something out of a fairytale! I snapped it with my phone when out walking the dogs recently.
It’s definitely Autumn and over here in the UK we are definitely experiencing the winds of November!! In my part of the country (the bulge on the right hand side of the UK) it’s been fairly dry still, but you may well have seen the news of flooding further up the country. In fact, I had a comment over on my other blog today from a lady in Cumbria who said she was sitting in her house (I assume upstairs) with the back of her house under a foot of water! Hope she’s ok… internet obviously still working
Anyway, I occasionally get an email from the Scrapbooking section of About.com with new articles. And I thought I would share one of them here. It’s a list of scrapbooking quotes especially for Autumn pages and you may well find them useful.
I have reproduced the list here, although I have included a link underneath to the article, because the website is actually quite difficult to work around. There is so much advertising on it that the articles are broken up and it makes it difficult to read sometimes, I think so anyway.
Autumn Quotes for Scrapbooking:
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.
No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace, As I have seen in one autumnal face.
October’s poplars are flaming torches lighting the way to winter.
Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.
Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.
William Cullen Bryant
Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.
Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.
Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always and a full moon every night.
Nature always has something rare to show us.
