I Shot a Turkey!

with my camera, of course :-)

Here she is trying to figure out how to get away from me.

Here she is on the run.

She was fast! I'm glad she chose flight instead of fight.

We had heard gunshots out behind our house about 30 minutes before I sighted her out my kitchen window. I guess some of our neighbors were hungry. Bad shots, though.

Orion's Corner

Orion got to take some photos at the end of the photo shoot. Unfortunately for him, Jules was already done.

Spring is Here! Let it Snow?

The weather was getting warm. We had some days where it reached 85 F. It was beautiful. We put on our shorts and headed outdoors. The flowers started blooming. Orion would go out and pick bouquets of daffodils from our backyard. Isn't he a sweet boy?

Then, yesterday morning, it snowed. Big huge flakes fell from the sky and the daffodils shriveled up. By afternoon it was too warm for snow, but the damage had already been done. I'm so glad we have a few bouquets inside to enjoy, and maybe the daffodils will revive soon. It seems this happens every year. The daffodils get wiped out either by the cold or a thunderstorm. Those beautiful flowers are never around as long as I'd like.
