19 Lovely Quotes about Autumn ...


I'm sad that the summer has come to an end, so I thought a post featuring some of my favourite quotes about autumn would cheer me up and, hopefully, get the rest of you looking forward to the chillier weather as well.

I hate the cold - two weeks a year would be enough for me - so I tend to dread the time where the nights start to get longer and the days run away from me.

There's something lovely about autumn though;

we know it's an ending, but it's such a beautiful one that we don't always mind.

Here are a few of my favourite quotes about autumn - I hope they get you looking forward to the day when the leaves start to change!

2. Beautiful October

4. Smile

5. Dark Evenings

6. Autumn Walks

Autumn Walks

I love this because autumn is the only time where the weather is cold and yet I still want to be outside.2

No other season has the same freshness.

One of our most quotable authors, and what a lovely one this is.
