I am trying to hang on to Fall and it's colors one last week before all thoughts will turn to Christmas. On Friday, pumpkins will disappear to be replaced by lighted trees and Thanksgiving figures will be packed away with Santas and Snowmen appearing from boxes that have been stored in basements and attics. Stockings will be hung in anticipation of Christmas Eve, lights are strung to make the shortened days appear brighter. Poinsettias will take center stage while the Mums in all their glorious Fall colors have faded and are thrown into the compost piles. We turn the page of the calendar to a new Season.
But wait, before all that happens I am still enjoying those last bits of Fall.....
I thought these leaves were such a beautiful color I snipped a few to place in a vase, but the leaves began to fall off the branches almost as soon as I cut them.
And I am re-posting this lovely field and barn from last week's trip to the country for Trish's Barn Charm.
And this barn, with it's really high window, it's pretty low window, and it's really low window.
Off to the grocery store to buy sweet potatoes, & cornbread for stuffing, and cranberries to make that all important Thanksgiving meal. Hope your week is as fulfilling as our tummies will be on Thursday. Happy Thanksgiving!!
Until next time.....
