Still Yellow

As I write this a pumpkin pie bakes in the oven. It is the first of two pies that I am making for this evening's third and final Thanksgiving dinner. Dave has been off work for the past five days which have been filled with family, food and for me a little relaxation. I had a massage on Saturday and while my body was relaxing my mind meditated on the glorious autumn leaves that are on display. In the summer I wrote about my new love affair with yellow and it is certainly not diminishing as the days turn colder. The hues are getting more subtle, more golden. They blend with other colours now so that I have to look a little closer to find them.

golden leaves with hints of orange and brown

cranberries, garlic chives, basil and parsley. some for the freezer and some turn into...

cranberry sauce to go with the turkey. in a bowl with a hint of yellow

Happy Thanksgiving Canadians.

I am so jealous of all the wonderfully beautiful colors fall cn bring. In Texas, we get brown, green. and shades of brown or green. Not much else. First time reader, but not for long. I am adding you to my pageflakes. thanks for such a beautifully written and photographed blog. Lovin' it!
