Signs

Sign, sign
Everywhere a sign
Blockin’ out the scenery
Breakin’ my mind
Do this, don’t do that
Can’t you read the sign?

~ Five Man Electrical Band

We certainly love our signs. They tell us how to think, act and talk and what to do or not do. Some are good, some aren’t. I’ve sometimes thought that we really shouldn’t need so many signs.

This serious sign collection is definitely blocking out the scenery, but with our terribly dry conditions and a major out-of-control fire just 10 km away, do we need the reminder about not starting fires or smoking? People will do what they are determined to do, I guess, but at least the city can feel that it has done its best to warn people.

The Deer and the Apricot Tree

I came across this deer chowing down on apricots. There were three trees in the field, all of which have very ripe and seemingly abandoned fruit. He didn’t seem much bothered by me as I stopped to admire the scene.

There were many apricots on the ground but this guy was picking them right from the trees.

I’m glad he found the trees and is having some good meals – he was there again the next day – it would be a shame for the fruit to go to waste.

Happy Monday; happy week. 🙂
