November Leaves...But Not Yet!





This November has been a beautiful month for the leaves in Georgia. It seems to me that the leaves have lasted longer than they ever have before!  We went for a walk this past Saturday at Panola Mountain State Park and the trees were amazing in their colorful display.
There were a few pinecones in the Ladies room for decoration  but somebody had to go and find a few colorful leaves to go with them. (Can you guess who?)

Hope you enjoyed this as much as we did! 


(A leaf fell onto Richard's lap as we were having our coffee. The leaf had a small hole in the middle, perfect for me to look through and see you!

 Out of This World Dressing - Hey Y'all!  If you click on that link, you will be directed to the NASA website and they have a recipe for dressing that the astronauts will enjoy on the Space Station.  Isn't that the neatest thing?  I am making it myself.  Wish me luck!
(P.S. I will add eggs to the recipe and maybe a bit more sage!)

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends, and love and hugs to my family and friends in England and my blogging buddies all over the world!

  1. Gorgeous fall pictures. All of our color is gone here except our grass is still green -which is really weird for us this time of year.
    I will look at that recipe but I am sure I will make my traditional dressing I have been doing for 100 years--or thereabouts. xo Diana

    1. My husband is a Brit, so I have never made dressing! (Not something he knew from England.)
      No, I take that back, I tried to make it once, but I have to do gluten free for him and in those days, the cornbread was not as good as I can make it now.
      I made the dressing for Thanksgiving and he is eating it even as I am typing this, he liked it! YAY!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving, Kay - enjoy your celebrations. I do love the Autumn leaves, and never tire of seeing pictures of them (we do not have the coloured leaves here in the tropics). What a sweet addition to the pine cones, and I'm sure everyone appreciated your arrangement.

    1. HA! I don't know if they liked my arrangement but they got it anyway!
      Glad you love the leaves too! They have been truly spectacular!

  3. Wonderful colours! There isn't much of that left here, we're now much closer to winter than to autumn, but that's OK - we did enjoy a great autumn, weather-wise.
    Nice idea to post the recipe for the dressings the astronauts will enjoy on the Space Station!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, dear Kay!

    1. The dressing is very traditional for Thanksgiving but it is not something that I make since my husband is a celiac and also, an Englishman who usually finds dressing a bit too overpowering with the sage and poultry seasoning. I made it with very little spice and it turned out just right for us!
      And we just had a wonderful Thanksgiving day, look for it in a future post!!

  6. Your fall colors are gorgeous! Here in ne Ohio we think the colorful leaves lasted unusually long, too. I won't speculate about why! Thank you for the NASA link! I wish you all Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. I thought the leaves might have lasted longer here due to the drought, but if they lasted longer for you too, then...it must be something else! Never mind, they have been beautiful. Don't you love "Out of This World Dressing", little things amuse me!

  7. Don't you just love the fall colors? I can't make the stuffing I like best because it has turkey giblets in it. My children won't eat it. So I just use Stove Top.

    1. I've heard of Stove Top from ads on TV but I have never had it! I would most certainly like it too...rarely have I had dressing/stuffing I didn't like, I bet I would like yours with giblets! x

    1. Thank you, Jan! It is as if the leaves have waited until the very end of Autumn to show the best colors.

  10. Lovely Photos Kay,
    Yep, they are definitely lasting longer here as well.

    1. Longer for you also, that is interesting. When this is being investigated from a scientific viewpoint, we will know someone in that field must be reading my blog!

    1. I did make the recipe! I halved it and I also used a different spice than the poultry seasoning and sage, and added eggs to the recipe. It was good!
      And we did enjoy the beautiful leaves and great food of Thanksgiving with my family!

  14. What awesome colors and you had a beautiful day to take your photos. I stuck to my tried and true recipe for stuffing. It was rather a hectic schedule for our family. Happy holidays to you, Kay!

  17. So beautiful! Hope your Thanksgiving was great! I can do the dressing part of turkey day, it's the gravy I stumble on...except this year, I rocked it! Hopefully I'll remember how I did it! Have a good rest of the weekend!

  18. The trees are beautiful, here in Tennessee most leaves are still on the trees. The dressing made with cornbread is very similar to what my Mom made!
    Beautiful photographs, Happy Thanksgiving weekend.
