Good Friday morning to you all!
I woke up this morning to a beautiful summer day! As I was stretching and rubbing the sleep out of my eyes, I walked out on our back deck. I was thinking of how peaceful and wonderful the morning was then I saw this...
Yes, these are turkeys, no they aren't wild. They are two of the twelve that we own. Some how these clever little boogers figured a way to fly out of their covered, penned in area. When I first saw them, they weren't being too clever, however. They had chosen to lay down quite close to our chocolate lab! She didn't bother them, but I'm pretty sure it was because she was tangled around a tree!
I woke up the boys and informed them of the escapees. We grabbed a bucket and filled it with their favorite treat, dandelion greens. As soon as they saw us coming they headed straight for us. I was so thankful! They came right up to me and started to eat out of my hand, so the boys snuck around behind them and scooped them up.
I'm just thankful we got a hold of them. We can't have our 4-H projects wondering off into the woods or grassy field to be eaten by coyotes. Not to mention some of those dear birds will be Thanksgiving dinner for our families!
Not all was chaos and excitement this morning. I was able to enjoy the beauty of God's flowers. Here are a few of my favorites...
Butterfly weed in the forefront.
Daylilies growing along the fence in my yard.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
