Florets - Floral Quote by Rachel de Thame





The transient nature of dazzling autumn colour is a great part of its appeal. You cannot expect to capture something so beautiful and ephemeral, and the inescapable fact that it will never again appear quite the same is somehow reassuring. Seize the moment, look long and hard, commit the view to memory, take a photograph - for the resplendent scene you see today may be gone tomorrow.
