Quilt With Us

The picture of this lil tree does NOT do it justice. It is the most brilliant shade of redish orange I have ever seen. It's so little in the middle of the other trees, but she will NOT be overlooked that's for sure! I wanted to get a closer picture but the bottom picture explains why I didn't! No way I was getting any closer!

I love living in the woods and never know what will stroll through your yard next. I watched Mr. Tom peck around my yard for a good half hour with two ladies, then he decided to start showing off. And like most women when men puff up and strut around, neither one of the ladies even look up from eating as he strutted around in front of them!

I never get tired of those beautiful fall colors!  Now, those nasty bees, well, that's a whole other story.  I've heard of people who actually love wild turkey meat.  I'm not one of them, totally agreeing with Pam and Roxann.

Marilyn, I love watching the colors change in fall!  Cat Lady, I used to live in town when I was a kid, when I married DH our first home was in the middle of cornfields, literally, lol then we found this piece of property which is right next to a game preserve. DH used to be a big hunter, but since we built a home here I think he would rather stay warm, sit inside and watch all the wildlife.  Can't say I blame him. Pam, we had wild turkey before, we actually fried it before deep frying was a thing. It was ok but I'm not a dark meat fan and that is all wild turkey is.  I will stick with Butterball so as long as Tom stays in our yard he's safe.  :) 

Thanks for commenting ladies!

Love the photos...our trees are starting to color up. We live in Upstate NY, so it is absolutely beautiful for a few weeks....ole Tom better find a good place to hide! My husband brought a wild turkey home one hunting trip. Didn't know what to do with it. So, looked up on the internet. They said to put it in the crockpot. I could've crocked that darn bird for a month and it was tough as leather. No more wild turkeys for us!

Love the pictures.  That's quite the wasp nest and I don't blame you for not wanting to get closer.  The only turkeys I ever see are in the freezer at the super market!

Roxann, Thanks for sharing the photos.  I have been watching one of the big maples I have been driving by turn to red since the end of August, and Fall does not even start until later today.  DH and I often wish we lived in a more rural area near a wood where we could see more wildlife.  Love your comment about the females not paying any attention to the Tom.  He had better watch out, Thanksgiving is not too far off, and that picture makes him look like a good sized roast!
