Artists Playroom's theme this week is
Now that conjures up all sorts of ideas.
I could paint half my family, they are right turkeys
but I only have a little while
so I thought of the closest thing we have to a turkey
and that is one of our chooks.
This is Noodles,
I used to have a nice garden with straw bedding
and a lawn and vegie patch.
Then came the three innocent looking
Within a week they had destroyed
or eaten most of my garden.
After a rather hurried trip to the hardware,
we now have a garden split into two.
One half for us and one half for the chooks.
You might say keep them in a chook house
but when you look into those beautiful brown eyes,
there is no way you can keep them cooped up (parden the pun).
My little miss loves these terrors and each afternoon
she lets them out into our side of the garden,
with the promise to keep an eye on them.
Oh sure she will.
Most afternoons, I let out a yell and grab the water spray bottle
(they hate getting squirted)
and chase them off of our outdoor couch.
For some reason they think that we paid all that money
for the couch, just to that they can sit comfortably
and enjoy the view.
If they didn't poop and drop half the garden on the couch
I wouldn't mind so much.
On the plus side they do give us three eggs a day
but at 5.30am
they sure let us know about it!!
So they are my idea of
and I think they fit the theme
Go have a look at the other turkeys,
that's the art not the people,
over at Jenn's
You'll be glad you did.
