RUNAWAY TURKEYS

For MellowYellowMonday  For Monday Doorways  For Ruby Tuesday
For Watery Wednesday
D - for Alphabe
For Sky Watch
For Weekend Reflection
For Scenic Sunday






Spending Thanksgiving in Sacramento, in the morning it rained!







But before it started pouring, quess what!
Turkeys wandering around the neighborhood ON Thanksgiving day!
Heard from the people we visited that it's a common sight, and even peacocks!
(This is not at the country side. but in one of the suburbs of Sacramento!)






But the next day the sun began to shine, so we went out







And had a wonderful sky till sunset!

Hi,
maybe this site is interesting for your blog? www.artapa.com

Artapa is a free online art price database that anyone can contribute to. Their goal is to create one easy space online where art lovers and galleries can keep track of artworks, artists and prices. A sort "little black book", that isn't black or a book. Or little, to think of it. They are now several months online, and they're growing all the time.

I don't think I would have believed my eyes had I met a flock of turkeys in the street! How amazing! The flower is so pretty and delicate. Nice series.

What a fine contribution to Monday Doorways - turkeys and all! (Since this was in Sacramento, are you SURE those turkeys weren't from the California State Senate or Assembly?!)

Betsy Grant said...

Believe it or not I've seen turkeys wandering in the streets in other parts of CA as well. This was a lovely post with the rain kissed flower, and the beautiful pink clouds photos. Thanks for sharing.

I saw wild turkeys all the time when I lived in Folsom, CA. I looked at both of your blogs. I really like your paintings.

havetoloveart,
Thanks so much for the link -I'll be sure to visit! And thank you for visiting here:)

Chieftess,
Goes to show you, Sac. is more rural than you might think:):)

Inger,
The really amazing thing is that I saw them on Thanksgiving day, which is also known in the USAas "turkey day" because so many will eat turkey! Have a great week, Inger:)

Cassandra,
Thank you -meanwhile I already visited your MYM -have a great week!

Louis,
You're funny, but may they were the Senate turkeys!! Yeah I love unusual doors:)

Betsy,
I've seen wild turkeys before, but not in a surburbian neighborhood:)
Hope you had a good Thanksgiving, Friend!


Wifetoalineman,
Thank you -have a great week!

Carol,
the memes have to fit in my story for the day -since I don't have a photo blog!

Mary,
I wouldn't mind a peacock invasion, because then I could paint them -they're so beautiful!

Chubskulit,
Thank you for the offer, but I'm too busy with art as it is:) Have a great week!

Stephanie,
That's what I thought - since it was Thanksgiving day! Someone might get the same idea as you and I had:):)

Maria,
Thank you for visiting here -and I'll visit yours:)

Cheryl,
Wow, you're fast...or savvy on the computer! Forgot to say -hope we see that quilt sometime!

What marvellous shots! Love the fact that the turkeys are so happy to be alive!

luvsclassics said...

Thanks for visiting my blog.
I like the photo of those turkeys strutting their stuff on Thanksgiving day!

The yellow house seems fitting for warm and sunny California; however we saw an all yellow house, here in New Jersey; it doesn't blend with a colder winter day!

What I like about your photo of the sky, is the addition of a hint of evergreen.
Happy Skywatch Friday!

Here in Northern Wisconsin we get flocks of turkeys roaming through our area all the time...they have an attitude about them too! Especially after Thanksgiving when they know things might be a little safer for awhile!

eileeninmd said...

Great shots, love the one of the turkeys. Have a Happy Sunday!

LadyD said...

New follower. What a lovely blog you have. I have always wanted to see a 'turkey tribe' walk on by!
