Appleton's Memorial Gardens in fall

“Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves.
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves.”
~Humbert Wolfe, P.L.M.: Peoples, Landfalls, Mountains, 1936

“Fall colors…. so bright and intense and beautiful. 
It’s like nature is trying to fill you up with color,
 to saturate you so you can stockpile it 
before winter turns everything muted and dreary.”
 ~Siobhan Vivian, Same Difference
