It’s Thanksgiving Day in the U.S.
Even the sparrows are enjoying a thanksgiving meal.
I am thankful for many things, including all of you who stop here to visit me.
I am thankful everyday. Thank you.
Good bye leaves.
See ya in the spring.

Ed Note: Thank you Magical Mystical Teacher for your awesome poem!
THE RED LEAF’S SOLILOQUY
Why am I here (said the red leaf)
Among all these leaves of dull brown?
Surely I’m much more resplendent—
Perhaps even fit for a crown.
So much more have I to offer
Than leaves that are yellow or green;
To think that no would notice—
Unthinkable! Oh, how obscene!
My veins are flowing with scarlet,
With royal vermilion and red,
While all those leaves that are common
Move sludge through their dull veins instead.
Choose me above all the others
My glory will last, never fade;
I am the leaf of your longings,
Most exquisite leaf ever made.

Ecological Day, created by Sonia of LEAVES OF GRASS, occurs the second day of each month. Yes, I’m late but I still wanted to post a photo. We only have one Earth, so let’s be good to it, as we enjoy the beautiful colors of nature, this time of the year.
Last Autumn, I’d taken a photo of this building stoop with the flowers. There’s a big difference today. I like the summer look here — the beautiful, colorful flowers. I also like the flower containers.
Have a good Monday, a good start of the week, everyone.
I love to see these flowers when they bloom (I think they are Rhododendrons. Please correct me if they are not.). Nature always beautifies the city.
This is my post for Ecological Day, an informal, monthly photo theme day blogging event. Started by Sonia of LEAVES OF GRASS, it takes place the second day of every month (yes, I know that the second day of the month has already passed. Pretend with me that it hasn’t. Okay? ).
Check out Sonia’s blog post on a photo essay of feral houses. Fascinating!
We only have one earth, folks, so let’s take good care of it.
Ed. Note: Thanks Christine, Constance and Gisela on correcting me about the flowers. Azaleas. Got it!
