Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Even if you’re not in the US, the greeting stands–we’re thankful for you, too! We’ve spent the last two Thanksgivings with Irvin and Pauline Faria out in Carmichael, California (HERE & HERE), so I was so happy to see Irvin’s latest installment in my inbox last week. He says, “Oh my, time appears to have passed at light speed. Once again, Happy Thanksgiving everyone! A special thank you to Michelle for her wonderful creative format for displaying our gardens. Her continued excellence and enthusiasm for gardening is very much appreciated. We continue to gain inspiration for our garden’s plantings and care from all of you who so willingly take the time to share your wonderful garden landscapes.
With these photos we want to share a kaleidoscope of autumn hues and nature’s beauty as expressed in the wild turkey, young doe, and magnificent buck. We extend our best wishes to all for a wonderful Thanksgiving. Let there be peace in the world.” Thank YOU, Irvin and Pauline! Have a wonderful day, everyone.

What a wondrous and amazing thanksgiving post! Is there a day 2? Happy Turkey to all.
Hello again Irvin & Pauline ~ I am always in awe of your beautiful gardens and your Fall pics, complete with wild life, are amazing. Such a delicious palette of color throughout your property, and I can't even imagine seeing that turkey up in a tree. What a site! We get the occasional pheasant up in a tree but that turkey is truly grand. The Himalayan Maidenhair fern is one of my favorites. Thank you for sharing all of these wonderful sites and have a great Thanksgiving.
just beautiful !
Wonderful photos and text to enjoy this Thanksgiving! How I would love to visit your garden... many times throughout the seasons!!! Love your gardening style- and your lovely specimens! Thank you!
Thanks, Irvin and Pauline! Such a treat to see the great images and read the wonderful descriptions. The Japanese maples are all sited to show off their form and color so exquisitely that it makes me want every single one! Beautiful! Happy Thanksgiving!
I am definitely thankful for you, Michelle, for your gardening enthusiasm and all of your hard work!
Well, Irvin and Pauline, I think your gorgeously glorious Mr. Gobbler will be my pin up boy for the day (if my more tech savvy daughter can make that photo my screen saver). You are so generous to nourish our souls with your beautiful pictures and to allow wildlife to sustain themselves with nibbles of your plants. I positively adore the new word I have learned today "stotting" and, by golly, am going to try to find some way to work it into conversation at the Thanksgiving gathering I am going to. Thank you for these wonderful views of your fall garden and you, Michelle, for doing the work ahead of time so we had this treat land on our screens this special day. Happy Thanksgiving all.
Happy Thanksgiving Irvin and Pauline! Thank you for sharing your amazing woodland garden with us and all the wildlife. Please keep up the tradition by posting every year at this time. With your turkeys and beautiful colourful maples, your garden is the perfect post for today. And thank you Michelle for giving us GPOD so we can begin every day with new gardens to enjoy. Last, but not least, thank you fellow GPODers for sharing your gardens, your advice and your warmth, making this a true gardening family.
That turkey is magnificent! Hard to imagine one that size actually flying up into a tree to roost. Beautiful Japanese maples, ferns, flowers, cobalt blue pots, water features and wildlife. Truly a heavenly spot.Thank you for a wonderful Thanksgiving post.
Happy Thanksgiving to all our American neighbours. Looking at the photos we have lots to be thankful for. Irvin and Pauline you have an amazing collection of Japanese Maples. I have never seen a varigated one such as "Butterfly". it is so delicate and lacey. Don't think I would like to meet that Buck unawares. he is huge ans very strong looking.
After seeing these grand turkeys I don't know if I want to ever eat one again! They are gorgeous birds! You are fortunate to see these in the "wild". Your variety of maple trees is quite spectacular. It gives me some ideas for our place! Thanks so much for sending these in and also we do thank you, Michelle for all that you do for us garden friends! I love this blog! And may all of us have a very thankful day and beyond!
