Last week while it was still quite chilly and rainy, we happened to look out a back window and see a lone wild turkey making its way through the yard and into the woods. We’ve had flocks of them before, but this one was alone.
Today dawned bright and clear, and a short walk revealed emerging wildflowers and deer moss.
The woods, which in the summer seem so dense and lush, still look open and bare.
And our poor decapitated St. Francis statue will have to be removed and replaced. (Whatever could have happened to it?)
