An Autumn Ramble: Paris-Amsterdam-Versailles

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” — George Eliot


“I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.” — Nathaniel Hawthorne

Amsterdam garden

“Autumn is the eternal corrective. It is ripeness and color and a time of maturity; but it is also breadth, and depth, and distance. What man can stand with autumn on a hilltop and fail to see the span of his world and the meaning of the rolling hills that reach to the far horizon?” — Hal Borland

Versailles village

RamblingTart - Oh! I didn’t know that, Elra. 🙂 My brother lives there. 🙂 I miss it too!

bellini valli - Where I grew up back east autumn was as simple as taking a Sunday drive or walking the streets of my neighbourhood with autumn hued leaves underfoot. It surrounded us with comfort.

Mia - Oh Krista, missed ya too!!
And all the lovely travel and times here!!
Stunningly beautiful pics dat make me fall in love with nature all over again…beautifully…

Anna Johnston - The colours of autumn leaves are stunning, its my favourite time of the year. I love this house at Versailles village, wonderful.

RamblingTart - That sounds so beautiful, Val. 🙂 Where did you grow up?

RamblingTart - I agree, Anna!! They’re so vivid and cheering. 🙂

Duchess - The smell of wood-burning fireplaces…

Emily - What beautiful pics! I love fall foliage. I live in Austin, Texas, where we only have a few days of it if any! So I love seeing pics of places that do have it. Those Metro signs in Paris are so cute.

Velva - Beautiful.
Hmmm. My favorite Autumn memory is probably in the North Georgia Mountains in a log cabin.

Joanne - I love all of these autumn quotes! It certainly is the prettiest season, as evidenced by your pictures. My favorite autumn memory is of apple picking with my best friends a few years ago. It was so much fun.

Nancie - If I was in Nova Scotia, I would make this in a moment. Sadly, no sauerkraut here in Korea.

Jen Cheung - i would probably head to paris for our honey moon. it seems like a romantic place to be eh??

rae - I took a trip to Irian Jaya, Indonesia when I was 19 and came back at the end of October – the very last days of autumn in northern BC. I was sitting by the window of the Greyhound bus looking out at an exceptionally picturesque stretch of BC to drive at twilight – 100 mile house to Williams Lake, and I remember marvelling that a sunset that takes 15 minutes at the equator could linger for 2 hours in this beautiful part of the world.
