A Quote for Tuesday

"The air is as cool as an old coin teaspoon and a faint tang of blue wood smoke spices the air.  The color of the great sugar maples is so dazzling it seems I must have dreamed it."  Gladys Taber 

These trees aren't sugar maples, but I think the colors of Pacific Dogwood (Cornus nuttallii) trees are just as beautiful.  I didn't think we'd get much color this autumn because it's been so very dry, but there are spots of color here and there.  Thank goodness!  I can't imagine living, or being happy, where autumn brings no change...


  1. Such wonderful colours to see where you live, here the autumn colours are mainly the oranges & yellows.Love that red of the Cornus.

  2. Dear Victoria - beautiful quote - read Gladys Taber's books years ago...makes me think they need a revisit. The picture is beautiful and I certainly wouldn't want to live where autumn did not arrive. Have a lovely day friend.

  3. Barbara, I'm glad you enjoyed the photo.

    Debbie, I reread her books every now and then...it's nice to think of a time when the world wasn't so crazy.

  4. That is a beautiful quote! So tangible!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
