On Autumn

This is my favorite season of the year, and I found the following gem posted by Holly H-B on Teamail, my favorite tea mailing list:

"The roadside stands were piled with golden pumpkins and russet squashes and baskets of red apples so crisp and sweet that they seemed to explode with juice when I bit into them. I bought apples and a gallon jug of fresh-pressed cider...the climate changed quickly to cold and the trees burst into color, the reds and yellows you can't believe. It isn't only a color but a glowing, as though the leaves gobbled the light of the autumn sun and then released it slowly. There's a quality of fire in the colors." John Steinbeck, Travels With Charley

Couldn't resist reposting it here.

I've also spent the evening on a recipe-scrounging binge. I suppose it'd be an awful waste of immortality, were I ever granted such a gift, to spend it experimenting with different recipes, eh?

You know, if there is anything about Georgia I do miss, it is the fall there, particularly in the mountains......

Driving up to the edge of North Carolina, to Highlands, is well worth a trip in autumn. Every road, every lane, is tinged in a fiery glow, particularly at sunset when that crisp scent carries on the air, and fall's chill inspires cozying up with tea and loved ones.
