Fall Colors

30 comments


I decided to include some pics of the fall colors this year…it has been a difficult hunt!

So I decided to include some other ways we associate color with this season…

Mums….maybe the favorite fall blooming flowers around here

The fruits of the season…

And the main course for the American Thanksgiving in a few weeks!

Lovely autumn colours shame for the turkeys.

Actually all the turkeys in this blog are wild turkeys....most probably will not be on a thanksgiving table this year! Turkeys are very wily animals to hunt, they spook so easily.

Lovely blog HW...no-one else has asked so I guess I'm showing my ignorance here ...but are they a different type of sweetcorn in the pic before the pumpkins??

They are a smashing colour & I've never seen them before!

I liked the corn too! I wouldn't thank you for the turkey, though! They taste as bad as they look!! :~((
The 'fall' colours are great!

Fluff...the corn is called Indian Corn, it is usually used for animal feed of for ground corn meal....many of us here hang bunches (of 3 or more ears) for decoration (or like my kids when little) for birds to eat through the snows

Thanks for the nice comments all

Glad they're ok! My cat likes roses too!!

Folklore has it that turkeys are so stupid that if a farmer goes into the pen and opens his mouth staring at the sky in the rain, the turkeys will imitate him and drown! Perhaps the farmer, too, for gawking in the rain! Quite a few settlers wanted the wild turkey to be the national bird, rather than the rapacious eagle: the US might have developed a different self image...as bounty to share in thanksgiving. Glad you got some color despite all that rain, HW.

MP...my 2 cats will eat rose petal and leaves!

Orgatis...I knew a farmer once who raised domesticated turkeys who swore that was truth....then he was given some young wild turkey chicks, and he swore they didn't do it! Go figure...lol

I do believe I remember that Ben Franklin was a leading proponant for the turkey being the national bird. In the native culture it represents many good qualities.

Such as?

Such as giving unselfishly of oneself to others, for others survival

Hear hear! gobble gobble. And so we give Thanks that the natives kept the colonists from starving in the early years, and share a feast, often a potluck including neighbors or those without close family.
