In the Family Room

“with ‘all safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin,” in the words of the beloved old hymn, we rejoice in grateful thanksgiving. For this is the time of year when family a and friends are gathered about us, and true gifts are deeply appreciated.’ Victoria Magazine November 1991

November’s leaf is red and sear:’
Sir Walter Scott

Then the leaves are whirling fast.”

In the bathroom

“In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought
and care and toil. And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb colour effects as
from August to November.“
