I love this time of year when you drive through the country and the chicory and Queen Anne's Lace are blooming together along the roadside. I have tried to replicate that in my garden. Of course when you want it to grow in your garden it doesn't happen. Ha I can just imagine the turkeys having their daily sashay through your garden. I bet the poults are getting big. I have read that if they live the first 4 weeks they are likely to be able to survive into adulthood. You must have a peaceful neighborhood for them to be roosting in your neighbors trees.


Love, love, love the southern Wisconsin countryside. Missouri can't hold a candle to home.


Beautiful countryside and a turkey play date to boot. What an enjoyable way to spend a day too wet to play in the garden.

Thanks for sharing a beautiful look at a part of the country I've never visited. Congrats on your new neighbors!


It looks so peaceful and serene.

I had to drive to Marshall yesterday and took the state highway instead of the freeway. The entire thing was lined with these plants. I just love chicory.

I have to look through the posts of yours that I've missed to see how your garden is doing in this soggiest of summers.


Beautiful countryside. What was the book? My club just finished Alice Hoffman's The Marriage of Opposites, historical fiction based on life of Camille Pissarro's mother.


It seems that you've come to appreciate the neighborhood turkeys?Our wooded 1 acre (in a village) hosts quite a variety of wildlife; residents and those just passing through. Some are more interesting and welcome than others (namely deer and woodchucks who graze on the finest plants...) I have seen a single turkey here once. I've heard that they can be aggressive, yet watching a growing family must be charming!


So summery, I just love those open fields with wildflowers allowed to co-exist with the grasses.
I hope the turkey's don't do much damage. We are into a wildlife year here too with occasional deer, skunks, a fox or two, several snake sightings... it keeps it interesting!
