On our way back from ComicCon, which probably deserves a picture itself, we passed this amazing sculpture in Canning Town. It was completely unexpected and lovely. From this angle, it looks to me like the Iron Giant is picking a leaf off the tree.

This beautiful surprise is one of the many reasons why I Love London.

Autumn is rolling in, and with it, the autumn colours.

When I saw this shadow in the back garden, it looked to me like the Bat Sign-- calling Batman to Gotham CIty to restore law and order and do other Batman-like things.

Falling Rain + Falling Leaves = Our Sunday Morning.

I took this picture for Instragram's weekend hashtag project, "Signs of the Season." I took it in the pouring rain, which wasn't at all pleasant, but I thought it was perfect for the project, as the directional sign seems to be pointing at the fallen leaves saying, "Look! Autumn is right here!"

2013: Week 40

This year, we had a bumper crop of apples. It was the most we've ever had off of our small tree-- about 30. The conditions must have been very favourable this year, with our wet spring and very hot summer. Last year, we didn't get any apples off our tree, so it was quite a result.

In Week 40, we had our apple harvest. In the midst of harvesting, we found this little friend on one of the apples.
