Awe :(

How cute is she! Are they usually alone, don't they run around in a flock?

RE: Off Topic.....


Yes they do usually run around in flocks...but every year we seem to get (maybe it's the same one) a lone female turkey she comes to the feeder and she's quite tame....she drinks out of the birdbath but she seems lonely and seems to like it when we talk to her.........maybe she's old and can no longer breed and got thrown out of the group...her head is quite white. Everyone in the neighborhood knows I said, off topic........

RE: Off Topic.....

Donna, those are great pictures. Thanks for posting. Nice to be off topic once in awhile too. The "on topics" have gotten a little heavy lately. :-) Hope your summer has been fun and your seedlings are growing well. I've got quite a few seedlings and seedling crosses from your eBay bulb. I hope they carry the fragrance. Alana

RE: Off Topic.....

That poor turkey! I think it's amazing that your neighborhood knows her and obviously you have to be taking some care of her for her to come every year! Donna, that's really sweet of you!

RE: Off Topic.....

Josh, Glad you're enjoying "Miss Lurkey" and yes, I'm afraid we've named her.....and Alana, I'm glad the NC bulb is growing well for you and that you've got lots of seedlings. I only kept and planted a few selfs, gave the rest away, but I have several more of these bulbs and they "all" appear to be very "healthy" for which I am grateful. They have all spend the summer on one of my decks, away from the "canoodling crowd".......Out of about 10 bulbs, I only had 2 bloom but the rest have grown substantially and I am expecting a bonanza of flowers this winter. We may have to move out as the fragrance may be overpowering if they all bloom at once!!!
