Guess Who Came to Lunch?

DSC_1718   While sitting at the dining room table today and  working on my computer I looked out the window and saw this magnificent specimen.

He strutted around our front lawn like he owned the area and looked at me as if to say “I belong here.”

He is the largest turkey I’ve seen this Spring.

Two February Poetry Readings

For those of you who live in Southern Connecticut I will be reading some of my poems, along with other poets, on February 10 at 7:00 p.m. at the Carriage Barn in New Canaan, and on February 11 at 1:00 at the Weston Sr. Center.

The poets all belong to the Connecticut Poetry Society and many will have books available to purchase.

The group of poets is a diverse group composed of both the Wilton and New Canaan poets. Their styles are very different and they are very good poets.

I’m looking forward to both events.

First Day of Spring and Lots of Snow

Yesterday was the 1st day of Spring but Mother Nature did not cooperate. She proceeded to drop 7 inches of snow on our already snow covered yard.

This morning it is still lightly snowing. Will we see crocuses this Spring? I rather doubt it. The ground still has mounds of snow and April will be here in two weeks.

The animals are in a dire straight as far as food is concerned. The hawks are circling overhead in search of prey. Three houses away from ours a bobcat was photographed walking in the backyard in search of food. We are in a suburban residential Connecticut area and this is highly unusual. Coyotes have been seen scouting many backyards.

Oh, Spring hurry and arrive!!
