After a long summer of wildfires and too many days that were 30+ Celsius, it’s soothing to take a walk around town in the cooler days of autumn.
We parked by the river in Kensington and then walked the loop to Sunnyside and back.
“Wild is the music of the autumnal winds amongst the faded woods.”
– William Wordsworth.
“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.”
— Emily Bronte
“As for marigolds, poppies, hollyhocks, and valorous sunflowers, we shall never have a garden without them, both for their own sake, and for the sake of old-fashioned folks, who used to love them.”
– Henry Ward Beecher
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” — Albert Camus
We finished our walk with lattes at the the Espresso Café.
I think Anon says it best:
“If you don’t like fall, you can leaf me alone.”
