autumnal tints.


“october is the month for painted leaves….

as fruits and leaves and the day itself acquire a bright tint just before they fall,

so the year near its setting.

october is its sunset sky; november the later twilight.’

  1. My daughter is teaching a class of six year olds. They were painting using only Autumn colours. One little girl asked was pink an autumn colour.
    ‘No,’ my daughter said.
    ‘How about purple?’
    ‘Well,’ the little one sighed, totally fed up, ‘I can’t wait for Winter.”
