Festival of Leaves: End of Summer

It’s time for another year of Festival of Leaves. This is the place to share your love for autumn and rain, for dark evenings and cups of tea, of books and all that you love during this time of the year.

End of Summer

Flower, berry and turning leaves all on one plant

“Do you remember the Shire, Mr. Frodo? It’ll be spring soon. And the orchards will be in blossom. And the birds will be nesting in the hazel thicket. And they’ll be sowing the summer barley in the lower fields… and eating the first of the strawberries with cream. Do you remember the taste of strawberries?”
― Sam Gamgee from “The Return of the King” Peter Jackson (from J R R Tolkien)

For those of us in the northern hemisphere it will be a long time until spring, but just remember the taste of strawberries to get you through the winter months and if you have some autumn leaves to share, then please visit Verena’s site and join in. She’ll be very happy to see you.
