All these pictures were taken from my front porch over the past few days. There was also a picture of several turkey vultures picking through a bit of roadkill, but I'll spare you those pictures. It was fascinating to watch though. At one point, all the girls were standing in the window making gagging noises–but unable to pull themselves from the action. The vultures didn't let me get very close, but I was close enough to be in awe of how big they are and how ugly their heads are–which I suppose is kind of ironic coming from a guinea owner.
I do admit to wondering where it puts me on the country-bumpkin scale to be photographing turkey vultures tearing apart roadkill. Hmmm…..
Anyway…my whole reason for this post is to share some of my google reader "stars" from last week–posts not necessarily written last week (I'm very behind) but good things to share with you nonetheless.
It's been a long day. And I'm trying to get to bed earlier so that I'm up earlier. But sometimes these quiet evenings are my time to unwind–but maybe they don't need to be quite so loooong.
Oh, and before I forget…thank you for some amazing music suggestions. I've been working my way through the list. So much good stuff I forgot, or discovered. Thank you!

Oh, Melissa’s welcome back birds dress, with the hope and promise of spring embedded in it!
Girl, I can talk cabbage! It’s one of my favs!!!
And did you know you can use it to replace pasta in just about anything? Try making lasagna with leaves of cabbage instead of pasta. Mmm, or roll ricotta and mushrooms up in a leaf, drizzle with a bit of olive oil and bake. Or… (I have TONS)
I saw your road kill the other day and stopped to make sure it was not one of your animals 🙂 So I guess that makes me a country bumpkin too LOL!
I can’t wait to make those pretzels!! I love the wood box…it’s from my hometown :)!
Road kill- ewww, I wouldn’t be able to turn my eyes either 🙂 I always have to look.
I am checking out that Smitten Kitchen recipe since my pretzels were such a fail whale in my house 🙂 I said I would never make them again, but I lied. 🙂
Your photography, as always. STUNNING!
aw, thank you, friend! :^)
