Vermont Sunday Walk

in SublimeSunday2 months ago

A wonderful Sublime Sunday in Vermont. I got visited by a flock of wild turkeys 4 times this week. I was lucky enough to catch them on the yard security cam. (See video link at bottom of post).

Even luckier for me, I was able to capture over 20 nice photos of the turkeys chasing bugs around the yard. That will come in a post later this week.

For this sublime sunday, I wanted to share a walk around the yard. It's been like the never-ending spring up here, with some heat and humidity just kicking in really the last week to actually feel like summer.

The plants are in full bloom, our Apple trees, garden and wild raspberries and blackberries starting to ripen. We actually picked a full bowl of blackberries this week with lots more to ripen.

Grabbing a bite of Hosta leaves as she rounds the corner to go for walkies is Betty's favorite thing.

Another month or two and the snows will start for us. Actually looking forward to a little bit cooler weather to kill off the bugs, and then Fall, my favorite season. Some leaves look like they are already falling, but we usually won't see the major color change and drop for another 1-2 months. Stay posted for that, it will be spectacular.

And of course the wonderful Wild Turkeys! Getting to photograph them with the zoom lens made my whole week. That post will come in the next couple days.

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 118 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

Beautiful photographs and stunning flowers! Our hostas had flowers about a month ago except for one or two "late bloomers." We're stuck in a yucky hot/humid pattern since late June with too much rainfall the past 10 days (approximately 18"). I'm done with this year's summer and ready for delightful autumn foliage colors! Even wintertime snows are better than this...

Hi, Betty!🐶🐾❤

Thanks, it's been quite a change coming up here. It's been like never-ending spring since April-May. We do get lots of rain and heavy dew every morning. The plants love it. The day lillies are taller than I am. You can see the hostas from the pic that just grew back all on their own. The woods here are so thick, with ferns and undergrowth, and the trees tall all fighting for the sun in their tops, it's almost like jungle. We just started breaking 90 a bit last week, but it is humid heat. I'm also excited for fall (not so much winter, lol).

Your new location in Vermont sounds quite heavenly with the lush foliage and dewy mornings.

Don't worry about winter -- Betty enjoys it enough to make up for everyone who doesn't!😂

Well, Miss Betty still very much wants one of us to go out with her on walks in the morning. Even though she should be quite capable of "going" all by herself. Yes, she is quite spoiled. I had to buy rubber boots because my sneakers are soaked through after 3 steps! Definitely not like dry Colorado where the grass and ground were dry like 10 minutes after a rain. We're figuring it out. But she will figure out how to do business on her own once the cold and snow get here!

And I can't grow blackberries in any way. She probably doesn't like the soil.

Do you have any idea or any tips to make it to OCD curation? @ksteem

Keep making good quality posts and they will find you. No submission process that I know of, although I do know some of the curators are drone fans. :)
