Lots to be thankful for

It’s been an interesting year, with plenty of ups and downs. This is the time I usually reflect on what I should be grateful for. This post is a tribute to the good things.


I am grateful I had nearly 17 years with my dear and loyal friend (and adventurous companion) Geneva. RIP, Sweetie.


But then I found another wonderful friend in Fidgit. Life is too short to be sad.


I’m grateful for the incredible harvest this year, and for having enough to give lots away to neighbors and friends.


I am grateful to the pollinators who visited my garden this summer, even if I miss the Monarch butterflies.

DSCN0664There were so many hummingbirds this year. Another blessing.


I am so lucky to have great hiking friends to share views like this with.


Finally, I am grateful for my wonderful readers. Happy Thanksgiving everybody.

      Thanks, Lib. I hope you all had a good one. Ours was pleasant, although we did raise a couple of glasses to a cousin who died unexpectedly this year, and of course, to Geneva, who nearly ate herself to death on her first Thanksgiving in the US. I am sure you were all thinking of Grif, too.

    What a fine camera catch on that hummingbird. Here’s to a return of the monarchs and continued presence of the other pollinators.

      Well, thank you, Lee. I lucked out with that shot. As you must know, photographing them can be frustrating. Yes, here’s to the pollinators.
