31 Days of October: Day 21... Simply Pleasant

"There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots
 may be lighted on,
 and produce so pleasant an effect
  on the feelings,
 as now in October."

- Nathaniel Hawthorne

This willow tree pattern is found in many Colonial American samplers and was meant as a symbol of longevity, strength, and devotion. Such a simple pattern to express so much!
