I am definitely not the best photographer. In fact, half the time, I don't have my camera handy or my cell phone when things happen that would be great to put on the blog.
For example, Saturday morning we drove down the driveway to our road. As we stopped to check for traffic before merging onto the street, we noticed a turkey sitting on the side of the road. She didn't look normal. It was like she might be injured. Then she noticed us and stood up. At least 6 little turkeys came out from under her "skirt" that she had fluffed over them to keep them warm. How cool is that? I wish I'd gotten a picture. Later, as we were coming back home, we noticed her sitting on a pile of dirt in a neighbor's yard with a baby perched on her back. No camera. Plus, if we had, she'd have moved before we got the camera into position! I guess that's what our memories are for, to remember images of nature that are special. DH keeps threatening to bring a trail of corn up the driveway with signs pointing to our meadow where they could enjoy a feast! I'm not sure how many turkeys we actually have in the neighborhood but the ones that are here seem to be quite content and not terribly put out by the vehicles that go by them each day.
However, I did manage to focus my camera enough to take a picture of the second orchid to bloom in my window. I am thrilled that they seem to like the light there plus I water them sporadically and always with african violet food. Must be doing the trick!!
In less than 2 weeks, it's off to Midwest Weavers Conference for me so I have a long list of things to do before that happens. It'll be interesting to see how much gets done. Weaving continues to be at the top of the list.
Maybe it's a good thing that today is a dreary, rainy kind of day again!!!
Until next week, keep weaving!
