Autumn in Maryland

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all.  ~Stanley Horowitz

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.  ~Elizabeth Lawrence

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

A woodland in full color is awesome as a forest fire, in magnitude at least, but a single tree is like a dancing tongue of flame to warm the heart.  ~Hal Borland

How beautifully leaves grow old.  How full of light and color are their last days.  ~John Burroughs
