Thanksgiving

Ornamental corn

It's Thanksgiving already - here in Canada, the second Monday in October.  The actual feasting may occur on Saturday, Sunday or Monday, but here in Ontario - not true in all provinces of Canada - Monday is a statutory holiday.

Wild turkey

Even though it's a long weekend, it feels short...but all weekends feel short, don't they? Many are traveling to visit with family, see fall foliage or even bird watch. I know for a fact that the wild turkey above would prefer to be bird watched than er...cooked and eaten.

Pumpkins still in the field

Most of the harvest is in, although I did notice a couple of days ago that many Halloween pumpkins are still in fields waiting...

Last Saturday, pick-your-own pumpkins

to be chosen.

Happy Thanksgiving...
Looks like a beautiful morning in Guildwood right now.
It is special day for us too..
I am grilling white fish from Lake Huron on cedar planks for dinner, considered 'Ocean Wise' according to our Vancouver Aquarium program.
Earlier this year we watched wild turkeys feeding below our bird feeder. Our cat was stunned:)
Wish you a wonderful day,

Happy Thanksgiving. Turkey's look better with all their feathers on don't they? Hope he is still wandering happily along somewhere.

such great fall scenes. hope you and yours have had / will have a great thanksgiving!

Penelope Postcards said...

Why not pick on something else? The bird is probably wishing turkey were NOT the food of choice during all the important occasions from Christmas to Thanksgiving. The pumpkins are certainly plentiful and advanced far further than in the west it seems. :)

Okay, thanks for clearing that up for me. Whew! Thought I was really out of it there. Great set of photos. I don't think I can come up with anything as close for when our day arrives.

Buddy is a crazy man....and he is not getting any better. What a cool place for running thru the mts in the rain. Will post more next week. Love your corn. I need to get some. And that turkey is magnificent. I saw a family of wild ones on the drive up to the race one day and the next a family of raccoons. g

Lovely set of pictures. Growing up Mom liked to plant "indian corn" because it was different and fun.
