Thanksgiving Harvest – a postcard by Ellen Clapsaddle
Christmas Chrysanthemums – illustration by Sidney Thomas Callowhill
That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving,
and tell of all thy wondrous works.
Psalm 26: 7 (KJV)
The light was especially beautiful yesterday. In the early morning, there were rays of light through layers of clouds.
For a moment later, the light on the cotoneaster branches looked like holiday lights.
In the afternoon, Karl and I went for a walk in the neighborhood. The light through trees, falling on a creek, November gardens . . . all so beautiful.
This morning, I discovered some vintage postcards by Ellen Clapsaddle at Reusable Art. This is one example:

We began this blog in December 2009. Karl helped with many photos, and I began with photography in 2015.
The original card is by Charles A. Waugaman. I created the arrangement, and Karl took the photo (2011).
