Fall's Gifts

green tomatoes
a blue pumpkin
and a peanut pumpkin

Fall gives us so much ... the tomatoes are ripening in a bag, the blue pumpkin will be roasted and the peanut pumpkin has made a wonderful, comforting soup.
I know it is not Thanksgiving everywhere right now but it is for us this weekend in Canada. I just wanted to say "have a great weekend to everyone" ~ Thanksgiving or not.
It has been wonderful to meet so many new people through all of your blogs, exchange ideas, read about your lives complete with all the ups and downs.
And to hopefully give as many kind words as I receive.
Happy Thanksgiving ~ for now and the coming seasons

Fall certainly provides us with some lovely textures and colours. Especially this weekend with the sun shing and such a blue sky.
Have a happy Thanksgiving, Barbara.

What great photos! I just in the last month have picked and prepared my first ever "fried green tomatoes" I really think I got it right the second time. My tomatoes didn't look as good as yours though.

Lovely Thanksgiving to you! Enjoy!
