On Thanksgiving Eve Morning...

...I took a walk through the Hollow,
with Tom 
and goofy puppies.

(Daisy added for privacy!)

Old wooden steps led up, up, up to the frame of an abandoned deer blind.

Walking where others haven't in a long while...

...but discovering some who call it home. 

Beauty has many seasons.

A party of palms on the edge of a dry pond.

Spring and summer blooms are hanging on, grateful for the mild temperatures.

The colors of autumn, taking over.

An old dreamcatcher, perhaps?

Sunlight playing with the leaves.

We saw the web before we felt it, thank goodness!

While I focused on these leaves...

...Max decided to rest. 
He knows when I start snapping it could be awhile before we move on.

More pretty leaves.

...and steadfast blooms. 

 And then on toward home.
Hope you enjoyed the walk!

And I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

The unthankful heart discovers no mercies;
but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and,
as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour,
some heavenly blessings!

~ Henry Ward Beecher

Thanks for the Post of the Week, Hilary!!


  1. A lovely walk!!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Belle is trying hard to get that daisy off. She prefers au naturale.

    Everything looks so great, especially the flowers and wooly worm. I'd like a place like that to walk and shoot.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  3. What a nice walk and click. Hope you'll link up with me. ;-> I especially like your leaves at ground level with the wonderful DOF. Happy Thanksgiving, my friend.

  4. Such lovely image, Barbara. How I love that decaying dreamcatcher. And the pooch's modesty flower.. I must get one for Benny. ;)

  5. You have fall color!! The modesty patch is perfect--I have an orange one just like it. :) Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving day filled with blessings.
