True Colors Thursday - Thanksgiving Orange

Today is Thanksgiving day in the USA and it's also one of our favorite days of the week! If you want to play along, let Blue know.
Today's color is orange!

This is one of the pumpkins that we grew this year and this is the picket fence and the beautiful burning bush in front of our house before it lost its leaves.
This orange pumpkin is not real and it lives in our dining room year round!And this is pumpkin ice cream and mom thinks that we should put it on our Thanksgiving pumpkin pie for dessert with whipped cream on top! Is this a plan, or what?!
The pumpkins on the front porch of this Windy Meadows Pottery house are orange!
This Boyd's bear is dressed in her orange pumpkin outfit and the mums and the DalePail are both orange!The barberry bush is a pretty autumn orange and if you look closely, you can see an orange cement pumpkin that stays in mom's garden year round because it weighs 75 pounds and mom refuses to move it!Our swan, Dauby's beak is orange!
The ornamental pear trees in our yard had their autumn orange leaves but now they're gone like most of the other leaves on the trees in our yard!Next week's color is cream!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Can we possibly be first??

Great oranges today - we always love to see Dauby.

Happy Thanksgiving Day. Those pecan tarts are really yummy - one broke when we were getting it out of the pan so we had to do a taste test. Mom just puts a little bit of rum in them to bring out the flavor.

Happy Thanksgiving Maggie & Mitch - we love your colours post - especially the lovely orange pumpkin.
Pumpkin ice cream with pumpkin pie sounds just about perfect! Mum fainted at the idea of the whipped cream too......she has been dieting for a while and is acting a bit weird around calories.
