The Turning Season


“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.” – Anne Frank

Some of the trees around town have already slipped into their golden robes, despite the still green grass around them.  This empty bench on a soccer field at Kings Edgehill School seems to echo the turning season.

  1. Those trees look majestic! It’s still green around our house, and I was shocked recently when I saw some yellow trees in the neighborhood. The Anne Frank’s words are so true. Congratulations on your nominations. Blogs like yours make Blotanical a place where I want to come often. Good luck!

  2. That is such a touching quote from Ann Frank .. we saw “her” house in Amsterdam ( from the outside sadly .. the line up was just too long) it was just so impacting to see the real place where it all happened.
    That picture is wonderful Nancy .. we are in a long RAIN period here with winds .. I’m afraid I won’t get any nice pictures the longer this keeps up. This is supposed to be my favorite time of year darn it ! LOL

  3. Your fall has arrived and you have made the most of the stunning scene! The quote is meaningful and perfect. Many congrats on your nominations too, well deserved and good luck to you! :-)

  4. Nancy, what a marvelous quote! So true. And your photo is just perfect. Good luck in the finals—not long to wait now ’til we find out what our fellow bloggers really think, eh?

  5. One of my favorite quotes coupled with a lovely autumnal photograph. Ahhh…I’d like to just go sit there and ponder the beauty of that place! Look at that sky!

  6. The west of N America is a great place to be, but we don’t get that stunning fall foliage, and can only admire it elsewhere.

    Good luck with your nominations, Nancy!

    Your description of your “smoke screen” at Fairegarden reminded me of something we used to do in the woods here, burn mugwort for a smudge. Wasn’t perfect, but it helped.

  7. Hi, Just drop by from Blotanical. I guess autumn is coming very soon and nature is preparing herself in becoming golden.
    What a great remedy from Anna Frank – certainly lifted my soul.
    Thanks for sharing.
