January 19, 2009 Turkey tracks

Filed under: General,◦Antique quilts,◦Country Living — sharon @ 10:38 pm

This morning we awoke to another dusting of snow, the third in the last two days. It was gray and misty, looking as if it might snow again at any minute. Then I looked out the front window and saw our visitors.
Flock o' turkeys
Strolling across the front lawn, apparently hunting for food, was a flock of wild turkeys; the picture shows about 2/3 of them – must have been at least fifty. (The bird in the foreground is not a turkey but a concrete chicken, perched permanently on our garden wall.) It’s not a rare occurrence around here, we see a flock at least several times a year. A few times we’ve gone outside and been startled by the loud beating of wings as they took off from the branches of the trees around the yard. It’s definitely an imposing sight, looking up to see a large number of these great birds perched high in the tall oaks.

In order to make this post quilt-related I decided to publish herewith a free quilt pattern – turkey tracks:

    3.I have never seen wild turkeys before – we don’t get them in Australia (at least not where I live) The snow looks amazing – we are in the middle of Summer and it was 35 degrees celcius here today. Linda
