"You never really know what scarlet and crimson really are until you see them in their perfection on an October hillside under the unfathomable blue of an autumn sky. All the glow and radiance and joy at earth's heart seem to have broken loose in a splendid determination to express itself for once before the frost of winter chills her beating pulses. It is the year's carnival before the dull Lenten days of leafless valleys and penitential mists come."

-Lucy Maud Montgomery, The Golden Road
