Well, here we are. It's the week leading into Thanksgiving and the beginning of spending lots of time with family. :) The leaves are just about off all of the trees. Pinecones, pine needles and sweet gum balls are found in the yard now. The winterberry has red berries. Before the birds eat all of the berries, I cut the branches off to use as decorations for winter. Christmas is coming!

Mary, you always paint a lovely picture. I can just about feel the celebrations at your house.
We are going through a cold snap here, we don't seemed to have had a Spring and Summer starts on the 1st December. But it is giving me a feel of what Christmas for you would be like. I am enjoying snuggling under a blanket and watching the tree lights, very peaceful.
