The Week of the Turkey Vulture

Lucy and I took a jaunt to the lake in the hope of seeing 'our pal'  the osprey and we weren't disappointed.


On our usual country road return we experienced our second vulture encounter of the week

The Loretta Young Show
(some may need to dig deep to remember Loretta and her mink coat)
 And then the fashion runway display began


 Then she tried to lead me away from her feast.
 
 
 'Well if you're not leaving, I am'

 
 


It's That Time of Year

In our area Black Rasberries
and the 4th of July
just go together
 Time to bake the bisquits
 Lucy says, 'pick this one, it's ripe'
The first round of picking went here
and is bubbling day and night.
 
Happy 4th of July from Lucy and I.

Another first atMuldoon

Turned onto our little road one day this week.
What is that just past our driveway?
Good grief, it's a Turkey Vulture! 
 Stay away, 'it's mine'.
No worries, your welcome to it.
And then I discovered there were four of them.

Small limb for such a big bird.



A real balancing act.


 Not sure I'm comfortable with his eye on 'me'.
 
 
All kidding aside, a magnificent bird.

Buck Moon – July

What is a Buck Moon? The full moon that appears in July is called the Buck Moon. Male deer, which shed their antlers every year, begin to regrow them in July, hence the Native American name for July’s full moon.

Fence Found

Bass Tournament night at the lake.
So Lucy and I went in search of a fence
 
Found this one along a country road
we don't frequent very often.
 
 
While searching I snapped several more country barns
which I will share another day.

Blooms and a Favorite Vase

Big, Bold and Beautiful
 The oval dish in the background
was a thrifty find several years ago.
 Never cut Astibille before so
not sure what to expect.
 This vase came to be through my Grandmother
I really like the square design.
Thank you for stopping by atMuldoon
 
I'd love to have you join in my link party

Wishing Canadian Bloggers Happy Canada Day!

What better way to send wishes than sharing photos from your beautiful country, Canada.
 
 
The RG loves Lake Simcoe for ice fishing
and follows a message board from there year round.
 
These are from a fall vacation to Lake Simcoe a few years ago.
 
 Our guys coming in with a good catch.
 This is where we stayed, the Eagle's Nest.
I guess these would be called 'free range' bunnies

They were everywhere on the grounds around the cottages.
 
A fun stop while sight seeing.
Not sure why it says Maine????
More sight seeing.
 
 What a beautiful lake
 I guess I was birding even then.
