…I am watching the turkeys out my window.  I spotted Tom way off in the neighbor’s field, and was able to zoom in on him:

Turkeys are so funny, aren’t they?  He was all puffed up and spinning about, showing off for his lady:

She’s much smaller, and  has come up to the edge of my garden (yes!  garden!!) but that’s as far as she has come.  I was hoping she might scratch up the dirt for me, add some fertilizer, you know…But Mister came and fetched her – she started to leave but has defiantly come back…maybe this time she’ll make it as far as my garden.

Now to research *Deer Resistant* plants…

Good: Dreaming about a flower garden
Not So Good: 9 year olds having trouble with friends
Super – Duper Good: Turkeys!!!
Even Better:  Looking forward to hugging that 9 year old when she gets home
