Letters from a Hill Farm
"What we lose in flowers, we more than gain in fruits"... what a lovely, lovely thought. This could also apply to aging in general. Thank you for this on this beautiful day!
Oh wait, that was the whole point...too tired from raking leaves today, I guess! :-)
Love the sentiment of this quote.
I so agree.And what a lovely spot. Your house, I mean!
Hello Nan,Oh my it has been way too long since my last visit here. Thank you so much for the lovely quotes. I especially love the one of Autumn. Hope you and your family are enjoying a lovely Autumn season.Smiles♥Beverly
I wonder if he penned this in his own autumn? Or perhaps he had foresight beyond his years?
Kay, I really though it was so beautifully expressed.Lisa, me too.Pamela, thank you.Beverly, lovely to 'see' you.Librarian, yes.Debbie, I wondered that, too, but didn't do much searching to find out. :<)
I love this quote (autumn is my favorite season).It reminds me of the joy of autumn that George Eliot expresses:Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
HKatz, I do so love the Eliot words - especially the last ones which you don't often see.
Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
