Giving Many Thanks

Luna and I were sitting out in the garden the other day thinking about all we had to be thankful for and I want to take this time to thank all of my blogger friends near and far for making my blog interesting. For without your feedback it would be a dull exercise.
We were getting a little chilly so we walked around the path and saw a splash of yellow. I was so excited to see that the Amsonia was finally turning color. I thought it would just freeze out.
I am so thankful that I got to see this last bit of color in the garden. I wanted to share it with you. I hope that if you are celebrating Thanksgiving this week that you have a happy day with family and friends. Those of you who don't celebrate Thanksgiving I do hope you and yours are happy and healthy too.

We had our Thanksgiving weeks ago, as you know, but any excuse for a holiday and counting our blessings sounds like a good idea to me. So I hope that you and your family have an incredibly wonderful Thanksgiving. And if you need some snow...remember, just say the word. We have lots and I'll share. Really.

Gabriel said...

That's not fair! All of the work on the garden is gone with the cold and upcomming snow. But you all have to see that on the positive way, next year is a new beggining, a new opportunity to make the things better for you and for all.
