The crow family have raised their chicks,
which are now flying with their parents
in our garden and around the valley below.
The other day Mr Cardinal watched mother crow fly in with a piece of bread,
take it to our bird bath, toss it over and back to make it wet,
eat a bit, then fly to the nest to give it to the children.
Over the weekend a wild turkey chick appeared in our garden, and has not left since.
There are no parents to be seen, nor any other chicks.
It is making itself at home, scratching around and eating whatever it is they like.
Because it is a baby, it is of course sweetly appealing.
But I have a question, Dear Readers:
As this is Day 3, do you think it has chosen to spend its formative life
living at the Red Cardinal Garden of Neglect,
and if so will it build enormous mounds and become a Right Royal Nuisance to us?
I have been a'hankering for the Match My Missoni necklace
from Red Phoenix Emporium for ages now...
Finally my resistance wore down and the precious beads arrived today!
Thank you Lotus and Willow: your jewellery is gorgeous!!
Think of the fun I'll have playing Match My Outfit with this one!
Aren't the storms wild at the moment?
We drove through hail yesterday ...
Have a colourful week!
