It's when I'm in the garden that I can reflect on reasons for being thankful. Every day problems are just that, and even though its human nature to obsess about them, Thanksgiving is a great reminder how lucky we all are.

Like most gardeners, time with plants offers solace, something greatly needed in today's world. It's funny the joy a flower or vegetable can provide in hard times.

Enjoy the holiday, some time off and give thanks for the good things in life. Take a cue from Max in the photo.
