At least someone knows......

.....IT'S SPRING!

Taken in the yard.....and yes there are still mounds and feet of snow. We have had 3 snow days in April already.

Big, puffed up TOM, strutting his stuff for the girls. I was in the garage working on the wood finishing and heard lots of turkey business going on.

Spring at my house looks a lot different, Rosemary. While it's been cold of late--50s, that is--it's supposed to hit 80 by the end of the week. The downside? I've already had to mow my yard twice!

*gobble, gobble*

Mom said...

I that actual dirt I see? Is spring really going to one day come to Idaho?

Jennie said...

I'm sorry, do you live in Idaho, Outer Mongolia? Sheesharama! I saw a little flock of turkeys on my way to my grandfathers the other day! I never see turkeys. That's neat.

Sandy said...

Please define "turkey business." As a city girl, I love all your wildlife pictures! But you still have snow??? Sheesh.

And here I thought our front yard was "the land that time forgot". Hope you all thaw out soon!

Jan; actually wild turkey is tough and dry...not a butterball that's for sure.

Dave: Go ahead and rub it in...I can take it.

Mom: Yup, that's dirt...with old pine needles all over it...there is hope.

Steph: At this rate, we will have snow on the ground until that great eating day.

ETW: No, we were forgotten this year. Snow this morning. Someone is confused I think and I need to have a talk with Al.

Jennie: last month Outer Mongolia, this month Idaho.

sandy: I think I heard someone say "Get a room." I'm not sure exactly how....eggs, fertilized blah, blah.

Turkeys... smile! When I was a kid we had a big turkey in our yars who terrorised me...he would bail me up in the outdoors toilet (yes an outdoors toilet with a can that the man came and picked up weekly)... I tried chasing him away but he would run at me going gobble gobble and his neck went all shades I was shit scared of him. I hope yours are not like this one. His name even ...it was Bill!!! (He became Christmas dinner arter a while. Poor Bill.

I enjoy a different type of Wild Turkey. Still, that would have been very fun to see (:

I've got one little patch of snow left in the back yard, in a spot that doesn't see much sun, and it's raining today so I can cheerfully say that the snow will all be gone by tonight! Your snow still has a long way to go, but the turkeys know that spring is on the way to Idaho. Gobble gobble.
