$15.00 Chicks

Pope’s Garden not only has baby Wren birds they have baby turkeys too. These chicks, Royal Palm Turkeys, were born on June 15 and are selling for $15.00 per chick.

Momma Turkey kept moving so that she stayed between me and the chicks.

Eyes Wide Shut

Today I went to a local nursery called Pope’s Garden. My goal was to get some pictures of flowers for my Flower of the Day post.

I pictured of some great flowers that I hope to add to my collection soon.

A great surprise was waiting for me…4 BABY BIRDS and one unhatched egg.

They must have recently hatched as their eyes were just these big black spots on sort tiny fragile bodies.

Their bodies are laying on top of each other’s so it’s a little hard to see the 4th one.

The owner of Pope’s Garden says that they are baby Wrens.

Thanks for visiting I hope you enjoyed my surprise too!

Patches

This beast of a pig belongs to a neighbor who also has another potbellied pig, 2 ducks, 2 huge dogs and a few chickens.

When I titled this post Patches it reminded me of a song by Clarence Carter that I have not heard in many years. The song is also titled Patches. Check it out on YouTube.

Dragonfly

Except from Why the Dragonfly

The Dragonfly normally lives most of its life as a nymph or an immature. It flies only for a fraction of its life. This symbolizes and exemplifies the virtue of living in the moment and living life to the fullest. By living in the moment you are aware of who you are, where you are, what you are doing, what you want, what you don’t, and to make informed choices on a moment-to-moment basis. The eyes of the Dragonfly symbolize the uninhibited vision of the mind and the ability to see beyond the limitations of the human self. Dragonfly’s can be a symbol of self that comes with maturity. They can symbolize going past self-created illusions that limit our growth and ability to change.

Tufted Titmouse

Here is an excerpt from All About Birds

A little gray bird with an echoing voice, the Tufted Titmouse is common in eastern deciduous forests and a frequent visitor to feeders. The large black eyes, small, round bill, and brushy crest gives these birds a quiet but eager expression that matches the way they flit through canopies, hang from twig-ends, and drop in to bird feeders. When a titmouse finds a large seed, you’ll see it carry the prize to a perch and crack it with sharp whacks of its stout bill.
