For this week's photo theme, I had big plans to check out some signs around the suburbs in search of one that was perhaps humorous or odd but, unfortunately, that wasn't to be because I was still too sick to put any real effort into it. However, as luck would have it, not far from here I did spot a SIGN OF AUTUMN!!! I was quite chuffed because signs of autumn are quite rare in this neck of the woods. There is the odd deciduous tree here and there but evergreens definitely seem to rule the roost. The early signs of winter creeping in this past week worked its magic and, lo and behold.....a glorious feast of autumn colour presented itself to me. YAY! Thankfully, my camera is always at the ready in my bag so I pulled up in the car and snapped a pic while Aaron picked up a couple of the leaves for me to sketch and photograph.

I think it's a Japanese Maple tree
...notice the bird on the wire?
Thanks for all the well wishes on my bout with asthma. I'm keeping those hot teas coming....thanks for the tip, Julie. I actually love my hot drinks all year round and they certainly do help to keep me happy especially when I'm not well. I've been staying indoors as much as possible and keeping nice and warm. Yes, winter officially starts here on June 1st!
I hope you're enjoying nice weather wherever you are.
~ Love, light and Peace ~
