*Update: quote #5 has been added! It is the second quote listed. Sorry about that!
Hello everyone & happy fall!
Things have been a bit quiet here on the blog but I promise I have not forgotten about you guys ☺ And I definitly don’t want to stop blogging. I’ve missed it so much. Everything has a season and you will hear more about my absence in due time. (Promise!)
In the meantime, I thought I would share some of my favorite quotes about fall. And of course they are from one of my most favoritest (yes, made up word I know) authors of alll the times…Mrs. Lucy Maude Montgomery.
Pretty much the minute it turned October, I was bracing myself as I scrolled through my social media. Because I knew I would come across the most famous, most shared Montgomery quote.
(Hint: “I’m so glad I live in a world…)
And ok I love it, but in my opinion the quote is overused. And I thought… there has to be other awesome fall quotes in these books!
And so I skimmed. And from my skimming I have the following 5 quotes from L.M. Montgomery’s books.
I hope you enjoy, fellow lovers of Avonlea and all things Anne. 🌾🍁🏡
5 Favorite Quotes About Fall (from Anne of Green Gables)
“It was October…a glorious October, all red and gold, with mellow mornings when the valleys were filled with the delicate mists as if the spirit of autumn had poured them in for the sun to drain-amethyst, pearl, silver, rose and smoke-blue.”
-from Anne of Green Gables, chapter 24, by L.M. Montgomery
“Peace and tranquility brooded over the Glen; the sky was fleeced over with silvery, shining clouds. Rainbow Valley lay in a soft, autumnal haze of fairy purple. The maple grove was a burning bush of colour and the hedge of sweet- briar around the kitchen yard was a thing of wonder in it’s subtle tintings.”
-from Rilla of Ingleside, chapter 9, by L.M. Montgomery
“Anne thought those Friday evening gypsyings over the autumnal hills in the crisp golden air, with the homelights of Avonlea twinkling beyond, were the best and dearest hours of the whole week.”
-from Anne of Green Gables, chapter 35, by L.M. Montgomery
“It was a beautiful autumn morning, clear and crisp and sunny; the frosted ferns, drenched and battered with the rain of yesterday, gave out a delicious fragrance…”
-from Chronicles of Avonlea, chapter 2, by L.M. Montgomery
“I went out and down the harbor road. There was such a nice frosty, Octobery smell in the air, blent with the delightful odor of newly plowed fields. I walked on and on until twilight had deepened into a moonlit autumn night. I was alone but not lonely.”
– from Anne of Windy Poplars, chapter 2, by L.M. Montgomery
Hope you guys are having a wonderful November and that fall still lingers in your part of the globe (northern hemisphere peeps only I guess lol, totally had to look it up!) The things we forget 😆
