Happy Thanksgiving!

I was off today.  My day was spent, like most, in the kitchen and in good company.  I had a terrific Thanksgiving and I hope that you did as well.  When I woke up this morning, the fog was thick outside and I decided to take a walk before I started cooking to be sure that I had something to share today.  I did just one lap around the house, but found enough interesting things to spend quite a bit of time taking pictures.  Here is the best of what I found.  The first shot is what inspired me to take a walk.  This is the view of my driveway that I see when I look through my kitchen window.

In my side yard, at least twenty little white mushrooms were popping up all over.  I just love  how they push dirt and anything else in the way aside as they grow.  I was surprised to see so many mushrooms because it was maybe the coldest morning that we have had this season.  These must be very tolerant mushrooms.

The mushrooms weren't the only flashes of stark white in the side yard.  There were also tiny, tiny flowers, called Innocence.  They grew very close to the ground.
On the fence of the dog's yard, I found this abandoned spider web.  I wonder if my dog is the reason that the spider is gone.  I know that my cat enjoys eating spider webs... maybe the dog eats spiders.

On the other side of the house, a grape vine drew me in.  All of the leaves were unique.  I loved all of the colors, the dampness, the fog in the air, and the curly vines.

Last, but not least, is a lovely tree in the side yard.  Its loveliness was accentuated by the fog in the air.
