"The foliage has been losing its freshness through the
month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows
itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen
one season too many....
September is dressing herself in showy dahlias and splendid marigolds
and starry zinnias. October, the extravagant sister, has ordered
an immense amount of the most gorgeous forest tapestry for
her grand reception."
--Oliver Wendell Holmes
