Tea Giveaway Winner!

Thanks to all who participated in my AUTUMN TEA GIVEAWAY! The odds were definitely in Susie Q's favor due to extra entries she earned for referring friends to this blog. And, I thank you for that, Susie Q! But alas, when an old fashioned drawing was conducted, another name emerged.
I am posting all of the wonderful autumn contributions below. Please take a moment to peruse the beautiful images that each quote or poem creates.


And, Bliss, just send me an email with your name and address. I will order the tea and have it shipped directly to you.

Susie Q said...
Besides the autumn poets sing,
A few prosaic days
A little this side of the snow
And that side of the haze.
-Emily Dickinson

Mary said... "The hazy, cloudless skies of Indian Summer. Leaves scurrying down the street before the wind. The cold shiver from an arctic blast. Indian Summer. The last warmth of the sun. Chilly mornings and glorious warm afternoons. The Harvest Moon. The Hunter's Moon. The Rainy Season. Dry corn stalks clattering in the wind. The touch of frost on grass and window pane. The smell of burning leaves." - Keith C. Heidorn

SusieStarr said...

October gave a party,
the leaves by hundreds came,
the Chestnuts, Oaks and Maples,
and leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
and everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

From "October's Party" by George Cooper

the leaves one day,
Come o're the meadows
and we will play.
Put on your dresses
scarlet and gold,
For summer is gone
and the days grow cold.
