you just never know what you'll see







I got a phone call from my neighbour this afternoon suggesting that I look out the window to their backyard.  There are trees and sheds blocking most of the view but I could see something unusual.  Turkeys!  I grabbed my jacket, hat and put on my big gum boots, grabbed the camera and headed out the front door.



I trudged through the knee deep snow and took some pictures of these two wild turkeys out for a stroll.

We had a severe winter storm warning for our area today but it turned out to be a mixed bag of freezing rain, ice pellets, wet snow, showers and fog.  Not the 20cm. predicted.  The storm tracked north of here and that part of the province is getting a lot of snow.  I don't mind as we have enough already.



My favourite tree.  {It's in a lot of my photos.}

The turkeys just wandered off over the hill.  I'm sure they are the same ones I photographed last summer.



Can you see one of the turkeys 'standing' on the tree branch?  :-)



I wanted to share this photo we took last Sunday before we came home.  We sure do miss our family!




I hope you are having a great week.  

The first day of spring is a month from tomorrow!  Yippee!!

Thanks for all your visits and comments on my blog.  I appreciate you all very much.

Blessings,

Pamela

  1. Lovely family photo, you all look so very happy! Those boys are adorable, hope you can all get together again soon Pamela.

    Bet those turkeys know Christmas is long gone, the big platters are hidden in the back of the cupboard for a while......... and it's safe to come out and strut their stuff in the countryside, ha! ha!

    Glad you weren't buried in snow, but I know it must be cold and tough getting out and about. Take care on the roads.

    Hugs - Mary

  6. Oh how lovely Pamela. You have a beautiful family.
    The winds here were terrible today with snow squalls and ice patches on the roads.
    Yet just 15 minutes down the road the sun was shining and the roads were fine.
    Go figure!!

  28. I still get overly excited when I see any wildlife...must be the dormant country girl in me....

  29. Great captures of the wild turkeys. Lovely photo of your family. We have family out on Vancouver Island .... just too far for my liking, but at least it gives us the opportunity to travel out there. They are coming to Ontario at the end of July ... bringing their children (one hasn't been born yet) to meet their Ontario family.

  32. I just returned from a quick trip to Asheville, NC and while there we ran across a flock of wild turkeys, about 50 or more all in one place. What a surprise that was. What a darling portrait of your family...everyone looks so happy!! No wonder you miss being with them.

  33. Fun to see the turkey's but the family photo took the prize!
    Yes, I saw the turkey in the tree . . . smile!

  34. LOVE those turkey shots... they are so elusive and difficult to get a decent shot of and you managed to get several... lovely family

  35. I've never seen a wild turkey before; didn't realize we had them (or that they're as near as the next province). I'm having freshly caught rainbow trout for supper tonight. That's wild as I haven't had fresh trout in about 15 years! And yes, we're in line for the next storm this Sunday.

  36. Guess they feel like they're safe since Thanksgiving is over!
