It rained all day yesterday -- a fine beginning to to the new year. Our pastures and our woods soaked up the blessed moisture as the snow melted and the soft rain continued to fall, melting the snow.
I was happy to catch a glimpse of what must be the same gang of turkeys that we watched grow from poults last year. The two hens are pretty much indistinguishable from their full-grown offspring now. The almost white one is still with them and they seem to ave picked up a few extras -- probably 'jakes' -- young males.
It seemed to me the perfect way to begin the new year.
