porterville, thanksgiving

 part of my enjoyment of working with flowers, plants, weeds or the making of centerpieces
is the finding part
walking into the yard, 
searching around 
all in hopes of finding the proper 'equipment' for the job at hand
having never celebrated thanksgiving in central california, 
i was unaware of the abundance of natural resources to be found
ed had a few olive trees with a plethora of branches to be utilized
'where's the dove'
red garden roses and perfect twig branches to assist
our mcguire family thanksgiving table
adorned with gourds
beeswax candles
and ed's beloved porcelain turkey
a true feast had by all
