We have several decorative "fruit" trees in the yard. They have beautiful blossoms this time of year, but never bear fruit. This is a good thing as it would just end up rotting on the ground anyway.

The day after we got back from Mexico, we picked up the dog from the Bow Wow Barn where he was living while we were gone. He was one happy puppy and we played out in the yard for an hour after we got him home.

Puppy! He sure looks like one loved dog, RP. Like GG said, he's a beauty.

Yesterday, when I made baked beans for dinner, I used bacon we had bought at the Nahunta Pork Center in North Carolina, while on our trip to the Chef & The Farmer restaurant. This is definitely not like supermarket bacon! You can definitely tell it's pork belly. Most of it was thick-sliced, so it didn't crumble well; I had to dice it fine when it was done cooking. Made mighty fine baked beans, though!

Mmm...good lookin' bacon, GG.

Rick - beautiful dog AND beautiful flower pic! Dawg, loving your apple tree pics. The blossoms are SO pretty. Wish I had room for an apple tree!

I haven't seen one of these hanging around my bird feeders for a couple of years. Early on when we lived here, we would get a rafter of turkeys around 23 strong. I wonder where the rest of them were.

We've been entertaining a solo turkey for a while now. There used to be three.

Neato, CG! We have a lot of wild turkeys around here, but they mostly hang out in the timber. Occasionally we get a couple in the yard, drives Beagle nuts. When I was commuting to work, there was a small flock that hung out by the road. One tom would insist that the road was his, and would attack cars that slowed down.

When we visited relatives in Joisey, they'd have a dozen or so hanging out at their birdfeeder.
