violet snow

i've seen this before
but today, i know
 it's turkey!
(there were tracks)
they've been foraging on
 wild grapes, so abundant
 last fall
and then 
 above and below
lives
a reflection 
 fine walk
a mild winter day
gray and quiet

Velma said...

deanna, it wasn't as cold as it looks! in the 30s and no wind.

hehehe. i stopped at a redlight a few days ago and heard what sounded like rain....hmmm no not rain.

my car was a mess from the great many birds warming on one of the main wires.

we've had no winter to speak of this year. slightly cool, drizzly days.

V-love the mystery of marks in the snow; and glad Wendy is well and out there in it. B

Velma said...

barry, she looks super, has put back much muscle and orneriness! but i am glad!

we have had the same color arise lately. on the backs of the sheep's coats there have been red stains. the first I found of it was a plop in the barnyard and thought "holy crap, a sheep lost a tooth!"
good antioxidants

Your sweet woofie looks splendid in her winter coat!
And my goodness, purple poop?! The things I learn out here on the internet....

Velma said...

nancy, wouldn't that be an interesting dye process, bird poop (mordant: unnecessary), if only you could assign one sheep and de-coat her, and see what the birds make of it! or, tie silk on the coats backs!
sweetpea, she has bounced back into health in a surprising way.

I love the photo of you doggy. I don't know what the Adirondack Blue Line is! I have relatives who live in Cold Brook, NY. :-)

Velma said...

morna, the blue line was drawn by a legislator in the 18 somethings around this place, the adirondack forest preserve and it is *forever wild*.

Morna said...

Good legislator.
