Happy Thanksgiving to All

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.  I hope and pray that all you family travel is safe and the turkey is good.  All of our kids and grandkids will be with us this year.  It will be a joyous occasion.

Yesterday we got four inches of snow and the roads were a mess.  At my bird feeders we had over a hundred wanted and unwanted guests and they emptied the feeders quickly and then moved on.  After the snow lightened a little I went out to get a few pictures.

Here is a seed pod left over from the summer.

Another picture is of a cattail with a few snow flakes falling.

The last picture is of hollyhock seed pods holding the fluffy white snow up.  Beautiful but dangerous - just like some people.

A very wild day in Idaho.  Happy Thanksgiving again.

Well, I may be crazy, but I do love winter! I hope we'll be there soon in Chicago (so far, temps in the high 40's and low 50s, how's that for Global Warming in late November??) and am also excited about an upcoming JANUARY trip to Yellowstone's Northern Range.

Hi Bill Guess the only way we get to see good snowfall these days is from pictures like yours. Nice post and hope you and yours and everyone else had a Happy Thanksgiving.

Have a great Thanksgiving. We are headed out of town to do some hiking--after a big turkey dinner.

Hope you had fun in the snow and stayed off of the messy roads.
Happy Thanksgiving!
