Autumnal Sunshine

My contribution to Linda G Hill’s One Liner Wednesday is about Autumnal Sunshine.

I’ve also selected a couple of paintings that help capture that phrase and I hope you enjoy the quote and the artwork.

Autumn begins on September 22nd.

Fun fact: there is a superstition from Scotland that says if a white rose blooms in your garden in the autumn it’s an omen for death.

Every time I turn around, I find another reason to fall in love with Autumn all over again.
