Well, I have been photographing rocks, as promised, and it turns out the trilliums are blooming right now, so I have been photographing them. And the knitted hat is just about finished. But we’ll deal with those issues later. Today, it is turkeys.
We took a short ride today to get the 2nd propane tank for the grill filled. This is the Monday of the Spring Long Weekend, in Ontario, but in Quebec it should be an ordinary workday. The sign at the propane place in Kazabazua says it is open, but it is not. Well. Kaz is a very small town. Most of its businesses are one-person operations. Sometimes they are just randomly closed for whatever reason.
We took the long way home. By which, I mean, we checked out the golf course (not open, but the flags are up) and a couple other short side roads. This brought us by two wild turkeys lurking beside the road – one a little north of Kaz and one along the road just past the back nine holes of the golf course.
The choice today was between trillium photos and turkey photos. So, I chose the turkeys. They are pretty good-looking birds, and I think they are both females because their wattles are small and coloring is more inconspicuous. This part of Quebec is at the north edge of their range, but with the warming temperatures, their range is extending northward.
I am definitely missing my gardening. Next time we come up to the chalet, I will bring my work gloves and some garden tools. There’s overgrowth and fallen junk that should be tidied up, for one thing.
Be well. Stay safe. Time for appetizers and a cold drink on the deck!
