Last night when I was out walking I found a tree with bright red blossom. Just like christmas tree ornaments. Yours is lovely and brings back memories of fall in Colorado and Vermont.

What glorious colour!
Thank you for stopping by. I was out of internet reach for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the freedom, but also missed my bloggy friends.
Where are you spending Thanksgiving, and above all, where are you cooking THE turkey, over a camp fire?
Have a great one!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well. The trees are so beautiful. you still have some beautiful colors in your part of the state

Beautiful. The colors are so vivid and pretty. The colors in Texas were really nice this year, don't you agree?

What a gorgeous splash of color. Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving. That's a gorgeous photo. I had no idea that bigtooth maple got that far east. By Thanksgiving up here, the trees have long shed all their leaves.
