A giving thanks garden, what a lovely thought. When I am in the garden my heart also turns instinctively to thanks.

These photos are beautiful in the way the capture the changing season.

Hushed in color. I almost want to whisper that phrase. These little moments are eye-openers, telling me to always look. Beauty is there.

There is always so much calm here when I visit. And I love that. Keeping seeing the world through that graceful lens. :)

i love your american tradition of thanksgiving and the way it has evolved (at least to my knowledge) over the years.

You do have a way with words that touch the heart, ELK. So lovely, as are your photos (especially the bokeh in the last two!!).
