Monday's Quotes

“At no other time (than autumn) does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, 
the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea
bitter where it borders on taste, and more 
honeysweet where you feel it touching the first sounds. 
Containing depth within itself, darkness, 
something of the grave almost.”
  ― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters on Cézanne

Photos taken at Lan Su Chinese Gardens,
the end of lotus season and the approaching of autumn.

I have been so impressed by the sheer variety of your garden's bounty this year! And now, I'll celebrate the approach of autumn with you as well!

LOVELY images, Marilyn... and words! Autumn holds so much of its own special glory... it's happiness to see if unfold and experience it. :o) ((HUGS))
