I-F: Subtract

trees - leaves = autumn. simple equation!


And I think these two might be a simple equation too. 1 + 1 = 2.
(speaking of which, today marks 8 years that A and I have been together, meaning I've been in Australia for 8 years too. My how the time seems to pass quickly these days....)

And another season rolls in.... autumn has definitely sprung in this hemisphere, and as much as I love summer, autumn is always such a beautiful season. Though there aren't many deciduous trees to turn beautiful colours here, the air feels crisp and brisk, and the sun still strong enough to make a difference.

Here are some other autumnal colours:
The beautiful japanese washi paper I used for collage in this illo (I love it when I find the perfect paper to fit an illo)


and a chili plant, as part of my bountiful herb garden.


Happy autumn!

Beautiful colors and birds. Nice autumn atmosphere. It is hard to think about fall when the air smells like spring.

Nice! Love the birds wearing scarves!

I don't think the weather here in Florida knows what it wants to do yet. Cold one day, hot the next, rainy after that...

Beautiful, Kim! I really love how you combine watercolor and collage, always with such unique papers. I've got to try that! :-)

Over here, I'm looking forward to spring!

Sooo sweet!!! Love the scarves, hee hee! I can never get used to the fact that our seasons are opposite. As Spring is beginning her, Autumn starts there. Both transition seasons are fabulous though, I think!! Enjoy!
