A yellow leaf for Thursday's Challenge.

When looking around my yard after the recent melt of snow from our first big snowstorm last week, I was surprised to find this yellow maple leaf lying among a group of brownish fallen leaves lying on the ground.  When I downloaded the photo on my computer  I could see some frayed edges on the leaf!  My curiosity was alerted.  Huh?  this couldn't possibly be a real leaf retaining such a bright yellow colour , especially at this time of year.  I immediately went outdoors and located the leaf, and decided to examine it. I picked it up and I could feel the texture of fabric.  Perhaps someone had lost this leaf from their Halloween costume  at the end of October or perhaps it was  part of a Halloween decoration?!  whatever its source, its serves a purpose today as I am able to share this photo on the meme Thursday's Challenge which this past week hosted the theme of leaves.  I am linking this post to Thursday's Challenge today. this challenge can be found at:

ASugar Shack for Sunlit Sunday

I have just stumbled upon a lovely Sunday photography meme hosted by My Little Home and Garden at:
Unfortunately for me and others too I am sure, this delightful meme comes to an end at the end of this month.

The theme is sunlight or a representation of sunlight or how it reflects upon you. Our host's post today features a visit by her to the Ontario Art Galley.  How well I remember visiting that same art gallery in 1980 -81? with my daughter when she was 10n years old and we went to view an exhibit of Vincent Van Gogh's paintings!!!  What a wonderful exhibit and event it was!! An absolute sunshine event of our lives!

And so for my sunshine representation for today I have photographed a painting which I have of a Sugar Shack in the sunshine,  What could be more fitting a topic for the optimism of March and the expectation of  the ending of winter and the coming change of seasons and the dawning of spring!

There is no artist's signature on the painting so it will remain an anonymous painting which I had bought at a yard sale somewhere, but believe me it has warmed me with its activity and intent on many a March day while waiting for the advent of a long awaited spring.
