A hundred years ago the farmers picked their corn by hand. It was a slow difficult job with time being the major part of job. The full harvest moon would help them to work later in the evening if they were not finished with their picking. This moon was in full view early in the evening with a purple haze of clouds in front of it. By the time I made it to my deck the lavender clouds were gone. When the camera focuses on the moon it ignores the background other than it knows if it is daylight or dark. With a day moon I can get a blue background.
The amaryllis is showing off for us with six of its eight blooms now in view. I keep thinking I need to brace the stems but it is holding its own. They sell these with such a small pot, just enough to hold the bulb, so it seems it could get top heavy.
We have a big meal planned for our Thanksgiving meal. My wife has the pie made and is working on the green bean casserole. We will have the big turkey and all the fixings. I bet we will have left overs for a few days. I wish all of you to have a great day of Thanksgiving no matter of where you are and what you are doing.
