Turkey Visitors

 Yesterday evening brought out Mr and Mrs wild turkey, with Mr Turkey showing off  his feathers in the bottom photo.  Not only the humans, but the local fauna (wild life) are ready for warmer weather and the spring greenery.  One of the first things to emerge are the trout lily leaves.  These are good for a quick snack while taking a hike in the woods, or tossing a few in a salad.  Mmm...
(A word to the wise: only eat wild plants you are 100% sure are safe to eat.  Remember, there are plants varieties that are almost identical, with one being edible and the other toxic.)
