Barbara Muir © 2011This past weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving and
we had a great one. We spent the time with our family
and extended family, eating so much turkey, stuffing,
roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, salad and pumpkin pie,
that it was hard to get back to normal today. In short we
had a really wonderful Thanksgiving.

I've said it before -- the great thing about our Thanksgiving
is that it isn't religious. Everyone can take part -- because
it's about the harvest. So we went to the market and bought
flowers and fruit, and the end-of-season tomatoes. It was
so lovely. And so warm that many people celebrated in their
shorts -- a first in my memory.
Flowers from the market and the garden
My painting today is the flower painting, modified again.
I think it's in its final version, but I'm not sure. With a show
coming up in three weeks, anything is possible.
