We’ve enjoyed our bright red maple tree with sun through its leaves, and also after a snowfall. However, after our recent cold temperatures, the leaves fell and mingled with snow to create a colorful autumn carpet.

As we approach Thanksgiving, I’m grateful for our backyard, the change of seasons and many, many other blessings. I hope the same is true for you.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
