I was busy making soap on Monday and looked out the window to observe this... I call it The Meeting Of The Minds... The picnic table isn't usually in the driveway but it was there temporarily while the lawn was being mowed. I thought it was cute.
The wild asters are in full flower:
Now- the reason for the title of the post. Penelope the turkey hen had been missing for about a month. I knew that it was possible that she was sitting on eggs, but since we saw no sign of her coming to the coop to eat, I also thought she might have died or been killed.
Turns out she was sitting on eggs. Third time is a charm for her - she appeared in the yard on Friday with quite a bunch of tiny poults - it's hard to count them as she is always bustling them away when she sees us but estimates are 12 to 14.
That's it for this post; until next time, be well friends.
