It rained again this morning... a very welcome rain. It's quite dry here - the livestock tanks are all very low.... and one big thing that is affected is....
The bluebonnets are starting to bloom
The ones I've seen so far are very short stemmed. Where there is usually a carpet of blue, it looks like this year there will be only patches here and there. I don't know if the little bit of rain we've had here in the past couple of days will help them or if it's too late for this year's flowers.
I looked out my window a few minutes ago and saw 6 wild turkeys strutting along between Celeste's house and her garage. They stopped for a while under the bird feeder, but I think they probably spend a lot more time under the deer feeders.
These two hen turkeys were in front of our motorhome yesterday afternoon.
We've been seeing turkeys nearly every day since we've been back, but these are the first we've seen right in the yard.
The corn that scatters from the deer feeders attracts quite a variety of wildlife.
As I've written many times, one of my interests is Geocaching. It hadn't even been "invented" when we started full-time RVing in January, 2001, and now there are over a million caches hidden all over the world. Starting this evening there's a national geocaching event being held right in my Ohio hometown. Over 1,000 participants are expected to arrive and join in the fun. There have been over 100 new caches hidden just for the event. It just wasn't practical for me and Bill to go to Ohio right now, but we'll hear all about it next month from our caching friends there.... and maybe we'll find some of the new caches.
That's All For Today!
