Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my American family and friends!

 

May we continue to appreciate the bounty of this great land,

and maintain the ideals upon which she was populated...

that  "All men are created equal..."

 

And to all of you throughout the world... I am thankful for you -

and the richness that each of you brings to my life...

The Moth has impressive feelers, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Pretty isn't he?! I followed him around from flower to flower for quite some time!
I like the feelers on its head Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Kinda cool, I thought!
Happy Thanksgiving, Elizabeth. Glad your daughter and family will be there.

Our nightshade has more purple flowers and less hairy leaves. Isn't this one a beautiful thing.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Mary! Happy to be surrounded by family for this holiday!

This can also be called a Silverleaf Nightshade. I like coming across these - though some consider them "weeds".
some wonderful close up shots, Elizabeth. best wishes to the two of you.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Ayush!

And, thank you - we've had a wonderful celebration with my family and friends!

Hope you have a great day. How were Frank's roast potatoes?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Bill! We did! I think the potatoes didn't turn out quite as he planned... but everyone seemed to really like them - me included!
Have a great Thanksgiving.
