Happy Thanksgiving!


             This is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada so I wanted to share some Autumn collages with you before the rush of the holiday sets in.
                        I love hydrangeas as they bloom such a long time are care free and beautiful.

                                                           Garden scenes

                                                            Country views.
                                                             Autumn respite

                                          What is happening now in our garden.

An Autumn bouquet for you!
       I have a  tour tomorrow and our traditional family Thanksgiving turkey dinner here for over twenty on Sunday with another tour on Tuesday so I will be absent from my blog for a few days.

                    In the meantime, I am thankful to live in this great land of abundance!

                  I am joining   Show Off Saturday at the The Rose Garden in Malevik.

                                 Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends.

                                        Take care,

Happy Thanksgiving.. so use to saying.. 'Turkey Day' as many younger folks do around here. But do tell, what's on the menu?

Oodles of veggies and delish dishes? Enjoy the weekend with your family with harvest blessings.
