left the building ~ flown the coop, so to speak ~ ~ ~ taken her turkey babies and gotten the flock out of here!!!!! So sad ~ I was looking forward to watching those babies for a few days ~ but I guess she couldn't stay!! After I posted yesterday, I went out and she had moved them under a Japanese fern ~ then she moved them across the walk underneath the rhubarb plant! Later, when I looked again, there were three big black crows hanging out in the tree above her ~ and around 5 p.m. when I checked, she and her brood were gone!! So it really was a lucky thing that I was home yesterday and could get some pictures and see what all this egg sitting produced or I would have missed it entirely. Thanks Mrs. Turkey for giving us some entertainment for a few weeks ~ it was fun!
And one of those times that I was going to check, I walked around the garage to get a better shot of them under the rhubarb ~ and there by the compost boxes was MS. DEER!! Lucky I had the camera turned on and she posed politely and I got this nice shot of her ~ we were about 25 feet apart! It's pretty darned interesting living in these woods ~ we are in town but it's like being in another world! We are so fortunate to be in this place!
It seems like I should do some hooking ~ I'll have nothing to blog about now ~ except maybe all the little league games this week ~ last week, there was only one or two since it rained. This week there is one or two every night ~ I don't know if it means as much to all the little grandpeople as it does us, but we're there!! Hopefully, we're creating memories for them! I didn't have grandparents as I grew up and I always envied my friends who did ~ I guess I'm trying to be the grandparent that I wished I had!!
Okay ~ I'm off and running ~ have a good evening!
