The Splendor of Autumn Season in New England
Looking ahead, we’ll be in the pond-side house and hopefully mostly unpacked and settled, kid off to college by the autumn fall foliage season. The scene of brilliant orange, red and yellow leaves against the blue of the pond and ocean should be spectacular. Meanwhile I’ll share some of my past pond and fall foliage artwork and photography from around New England.
the third season of the year, when crops and fruits are gathered and leaves fall, in the northern hemisphere from September to November and in the southern hemisphere from March to May.
“the countryside is ablaze with color in autumn”
OctoberO hushed October morning mild,Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;Tomorrow’s wind, if it be wild,Should waste them all.The crows above the forest call;Tomorrow they may form and go.O hushed October morning mild,Begin the hours of this day slow.Make the day seem to us less brief.Hearts not averse to being beguiled,Beguile us in the way you know.Release one leaf at break of day;At noon release another leaf;One from our trees, one far away.Retard the sun with gentle mist;Enchant the land with amethyst.Slow, slow!For the grapes’ sake, if they were all,Whose leaves already are burnt with frost,Whose clustered fruit must else be lost—For the grapes’ sake along the wall.Old New England White Picket Fence in Autumn by Edward M. Fielding
