#WQWWC #44: Autumn or Fall

Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays Writing Challenge Logo

Many of my fellow Challenge Hosts have already featured fall or autumn in colors, photos, stories, and poetry. Fall is my favorite season maybe because of how gorgeous and cool it is, or maybe because I am a fall child.

Whatever your reason, If you love this season, please join in with your quotes, pictures, stories, poems and other creative endeavors.

This weekly writing challenge runs from Wednesday through Tuesday. The only rule is to use a quote. If you want to participate, create a pingback to link your post. Not sure how to do that? See how to create pingbacks here. Be sure to link to the most recent post not my page. I donโ€™t see links to my page. 

My Favorite Fall Quotes & Photos

โ€œAnyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day.โ€

Shira Tamir

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

George Eliot
Path around Bell Rock, Sedona

If a year was tucked inside of a clock, then autumn would be the magic hour.

Victoria Erickson
Fain Lake, Prescott Valley, AZ

It looked like the world was covered in a cobbler crust of brown sugar and cinnamon.

Sarah Addison Allen
grape leaves

“It’s the first day of autumn! A time of hot chocolatey mornings, and toasty marshmallow evenings, and, best of all, leaping into leaves!”

Winnie the Pooh, Pooh’s Grand Adventure
Mulberry leaves make great piles for jumping.

  1. Just stunning. I love the jewel tones in the changing leaves. But that gold is just magnificent. I want to join you this month…before the month is out. Having a terrible time with WordPress but will try to get a post together. Thank you for sharing the bits of fall you have encountered in your world.

  2. Well, you know I love Fall, Marsha! I noticed you adjusted your WQW prompts, so that’s good. Love the quotes you’ve chosen this week, especially the one about how fall is the golden hour! I can easily link with Sunday Stills this week (pink–kind of a color challenge, more my nod to BC awareness). Love those grape leaf images, I do miss seeing them.

    • I miss them, too. I’m at a loss for fall colors here. Pink might be easier. It is if I fall back to my BC 60-mile walk photos. I spent hours classifying my pictures by orange last week to even find some fall pictures! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Beautiful photos and quotes, Marsha. I love all the warm red, orange and brown hues captured, it just feels like you need a snuggly scarf and hot cuppa in your hand just to scroll through them – haha. I love the Bell Rock one too, that feels like you have captured a moment.
    Thank you for including a link to my story.

    • I dont’ know if my comment went through, Irene, I hate to admit it, but I can’t crawl out of bed until the autumn or winter sun is shining through my window, and by then I’ve missed it! I’m glad you were an early riser, though. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Do you know I never took a picture of all those big yellow mulberry leaves when I raked them. I’m kicking myself. They were so wonderful. I loved raking them. I tried to call you this morning. You must be super busy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
