Beautiful picture of your tree lined street! Wish I could walk down it. Surely this quote isn't by George Burns the comedian?

I don't know. I found this quote in some collection of quotes sorted by subjects. Clicking on the name, that did take me to other George Burns quotes, quite a few of which were related to old age.

Vad många vi är som postat gula löv denna veckan, Sverige fullkomligen exploderar i sin färgprakt.

Lovely quote!

what a beautiful quote. George Burns? The comedian? He did live to be really old, maybe 100? I know Bob Hope did. Do you like George Burns over there?

C.Girl, I have to confess I'm not sure if I ever even heard of George Burns until I looked the name up in connection with finding this quote. Bob Hope I do remember from old movies. Seems they both lived to be 100!

Autumn in nature can be very beautiful. That can include the animal kingdom - we just tend to look at things old and animal through different lenses.
