Good morning!   Holy cow winter people, hope you're all safe and warm where you are!  I spent a good part of yesterday outside  cleaning up the patio in my shirtsleeves.. even the robins think spring is right around the corner.  For probably a week I had flocks and flocks of giant robins, I don't remember them ever being so huge before.  They've left a mess all over my patio on every surface if you know what I mean, and it's a pain to get it cleaned up when you can't spray down the cement.

Sunday we were coming home through old downtown and came across a flock of  turkeys wandering down the road. There were more turkeys outside the frame here, including a giant tom turkey leading the parade down the street.  He didn't seem too smart though, he walked right in front of the car. 

Hope everything is going well where you are people!  Be safe and be warm! xo

Awwww - that robin looks so cute in that pot, but I know what you mean about the mess. We would sometimes hang little birdseed bells from our deck - what a mess afterwards!! Love the sign of spring for you though! Wild Turkeys another story....! Today is a brrrrr, cold day, but sunny - sunny and warm sewing day - inside :)!

I can't imagine having warm weather this time of year. We have about 20 inches of snow right now, less than the 25-28 they were predicting.

Omigod! That's my house!! We can always tell when the turkeys are out front because of the cars honking They are completely oblivious to the traffic.
