"Peace" rose

turkey in window I must have clicked 274 times to get this one photo.  I am behind the bedroom window that happens to be clean…… enough ~  miracle.
A year later I assume it disappeared into the IPhoto abyss.

Today I discovered my Picassa setting of “Only You” is perhaps NOT “Only ME” because 647 views of pansies seems excessive?
I did discover my turkey photo!
But I am not pleased with
647 views of
my private pansies!

Blue Pansies ~

I love blue pansies. They grow wonderfully here until now. We are heating up in Sonoma County, CA.

Pansies like the cool of winter/spring. IF I am feeling ambitious enough to plant them in the fall, I get lucky.
Or they overwinter…

Usually it’s~
“NO, I am not feeling ambitious enough to plant a damn thing!”

    I live in New Hampshire and have about 50 or more turkeys that wonder around my apple orchard. I didn’t realize that they were also native to your area. Great photo.

    Good evening dear Linda~

    OMG…you had me giggling with your post title and then giggling more when I saw the photo!

    He’s a turkey Peeping Tom – HA!

    GREAT photo, btw! Both of the turkey AND the pansies!

    Ironic you shared that it’s warming up in your part of the country because here in Philly (and much of the north east), it feels like the winter we never got. It’s COLD! But you know me, I LOVE the cold so I’m enjoying it!

    Have a glorious weekend, dear friend!

    Sending you a BIG hug of Reiki…..

    Is Tom a ‘turkey’ or a pansie? NO, he’s a Peep! Wondering if he’ll make it until Thanksgiving. My guess is NOT! There is a dinner in his future and it ain’t HIS to enjoy. but it IS his to BE enjoyed. (Is there a hint of philosophy therein hidden?)
    Take care, Linda-Girl, enjoy these days of life anew–everywhere!
    Love and PEACE to you, Peep!

    Oh what fun it’d be to wake up to that eyeball staring at you through the window. LOL That’s akin to my waking up to a cow’s face in my window and a hearty, happy “MOOOOOOOooooo!” LOL Yeahyeah……g’morning to you to Mr. Cow.

    Oh, but the pansies are gorgeous.
    So I can see why there’s 647 views! (yes, I realize the 647 views isn’t necessarily happy news….)

    1. yes, please ask the girl that you put through college, mine quit as of now… i have no idea and you are the first. i have heard some browsers but who knows which – i ignored as no one said anything but it does concern me. on my end, much of my problem has been a “security issue” too but not this. rather the “browser c annot connect. please check setting……..” and others. i think it’s google’s chrome browser. i will certainly find out today as i have a bit of leeway with my connect i think…famous last words. i do have security settings on here that i had changed yesterday. maybe i should change them back as you didn’t see this before today right? i think i made it LESS secure by trying to make it less tedious with sign-ins from other than WP…. sigh…. sometimes…. when i finally have all these answers i will have gotten tired of blogging!! xoxo

      glad you liked mr turk. isn’t he something. what a stroke of luck to have captured him just as he peeped up. today i caught big girl-dog-climbing into empty water trough fountain and it’s looking good for the blog. that’s always fun!! so you’ve got cows too??? i didn’t know you were on a ranch/farm?

    Sorry it’s taken me a few days to get back over here but once again the journey was so well worth the wait. Your turkey really is an unfortunate example of the avian species, isn’t he? Nevertheless, I bet he’s supremely attractive to the lady turkeys in the neighborhood and everything in creation was made for a purpose even if some bits aren’t immediately apparent to us who lean toward a different aesthetic.

    The pansies, on the other hand, are very lovely. They were my Grandfather’s favorite flower of all he had to choose from in his wonderful English gardens. Yes, he was a stonemason and a gardener – built a church but never went in even though he brought flowers for every service. I took his view of Christianity as my own from early on.

    I hope you are well and that the long time sun shines upon you.

  9. good veery early morning here, sweet susan… isn’t he unfortunate but then aren’t so many birds strangely marked and/or colored. the turkey is very intelligent however, something that might set him apart. from what i have seen of his ladies, none are interested!! and the turkey boys seem more interested in EACH OTHER! very strange! i do lean to a different aesthetic.

    the pansy was my grandmother’s favorite. how sweet. maybe they might have been lovers? i am a romantic. i love his view of Christianity and so many just like that. for most, i believe worship of the Divine is a private matter. sitting in pews, singing strange songs led by an off-key organist is not my style ….ah the stories i could tell…but won’t! his offering is very touching and speaks much of his character. now i see where you come from … a little bit anyway! i certainly see why.
    xoxoxo and guess what? i am off to bed…….xxx
