Leaves and turkeys

The oak trees have started dropping their leaves. It’s only been a few leaves here and there but today it was raining leaves. As fast as we could rake the leaves up, more would fall. At the end of the day, it hardly looked like we had been cleaning up all day. Luckily we had netted the pond earlier this week. I think the koi like the net over them. I’m hoping that within a week all the oak leaves will have dropped.

This morning we had some unwelcome guests – wild turkeys.  They come to drink the water and scrounge around for something to eat. The turkeys don’t see to get to excited around people. The pond digger threw a few rocks at them to discourage future visits.IMG_3216
