My sister-in-law took this photo on Thanksgiving, before we sat down to dinner. The tall white pine is one of the things I love most about our back yard. Another thing I love about our property is looking out the window and seeing nothing but trees and sky. A luxury in today’s world.

I did something different with my table – at least for me. I wound some tiny lights around the wintergreen plant in the center to add a bit more light and atmosphere. The turkey candle holders were a score from Home Goods a few years ago.

As we retreat indoors at this time of year, life outside goes on and our trusty game camera has captured shots of the nighttime visitors in our backyard. This doe and her twin fawns were a nice surprise.

A fox makes the rounds just about every night.

Coyotes are also regulars. This is not a place to leave your dog outside unattended, ever. It scares the heck out of me every time I walk by one of those houses with invisible fencing and a dog is sitting alone in the yard.

I wish all my readers a happy belated Thanksgiving. I hope it was a peaceful, happy, relaxing day.
