On my way to the market yesterday I spotted this wild turkey crossing the road. Since there were no other cars on the road I snatched little camera out of my purse and snagged a few snaps of it. I’m not familiar enough with them to know if it’s male or female but there was definitely a bit of red on the "chin". It’s not really the best area for a turkey to be wandering since not even 100 feet away was the border of the Sportsmen’s club. Usually I see these guys in groups of four or five but this one seemed to be a loner as there were no others around that I could see.
Spring garden prep continues. I’ve spread some rock along the side of the raised bed where it often gets muddy. I picked up pansies, violas, and Johnny-jump-ups yesterday and installed those in the patio pots along with a rosemary and some creeping thyme. Anything else will have to wait until after the frost date but these will provide plenty of lovely color until then.
While Daniel was away on April vacation with his dad he was able to create coasters from the wood I’d bought him. All they need now is a bit of sanding and a coat of varnish. It took a bit of hunting in the basement but I did manage to unearth a can of clear finish for him to use on these so perhaps this afternoon while it’s still warm he’ll get around to that.
