Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day brought 16 of us around our table yesterday. After a glorious fall day on Sunday, we had wind, rain and cool weather as everyone arrived.

We have much to be thankful for.


Today we can enjoy the leftover turkey, and of course, a piece of apple pie.


This autumn our hydrangeas have been beautiful, turning a prettier pink than usual. I seeded some Osaka ornamental cabbages, and they too have been very pretty. I love the delicate markings on the leaf edges.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, and now we can all join Sandi for tea.

Love the photos of your beautiful Thanksgiving! The first photo of the bouquet of flowers has a lovely by Spode. The dinner table is set with Evesham by Royal Worcester dinner plates for your meal. The dessert of apple pie is served on one of 222 Fifth salad/dessert plates. Please, take a peek of my post this week.
Hope you enjoyed your Canadian Thanksgiving and have a great week!

Happy Thanksgiving Week to you! Looks like a great celebration. Your table looked wonderful with those cabbages. Leftovers are one of the best things about Thanksgiving dinner. We're still enjoying ours!

Thanksgiving is such a special occasion and remembrance bringing families and friends to gather around the table and share a beautiful feast. Your centrepiece looked very special and that turkey..yum. We only have turkey once a year and that is at Christmas time.

Thank you for your kind visit. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Blessings,
Aida
