I saw a leaf and was intrigued by the patterns created once whatever feasted on it was full and content. I thought you might like a peek. Its funny how I find this artistic... if it had eaten something I had planted I would be all stressed out and looking for a cure! :)
While I was consumed by the new growth in the garden, suddenly I realized that I was hearing an odd knocking sound. Not repetitive, like a woodpecker hammering away on a tree, but just one every few seconds. My first thought was that it was some type of woodpecker. Maybe a tree frog? Then I realized it was directly above my head. I looked up and there it was suspended in the darkness of the woods with the illuminated sky as it's background; too much in silhouette for me to determine what is was. WHAT THE HECK IS THAT??? A HUGE frog or maybe a MAMMOTH squirrel??? Nope... Wild Turkey booties!
Perhaps a better view?
That's right! Our mama wild turkey and her babies! What a treat!
I had no idea that those babies roosted that high up in the trees!

Needless to say I made them a little apprehensive so they moved to another tree, deeper into the woods. I didn't take it personal! Seeing them just made my day!
Won't you join me in the garden again tomorrow?
