Before I explain and show pics about my mystery crop circles, here’s an ant doodle I did while watching the Project Runway finale last night:
My favorite ant is this one:
Actually, I don’t often sit around drawing ants, I was drawing a page of picnic theme quilting designs. Once though, in the 1990′s, I designed a ant theme cover for a magazine- and in my ant world, I drew a People Farm sitting on the shelf. After it was published, a rubber stamp company owner called and asked to turn the whole page into rubber stamps. LOL Somewhere in my garage are a bunch of ant stamps, people farm, and other stamps I designed over the years including my godzilla design.
Now onto the “Crop Circle” mystery: I was out admiring the spring flowers, then noticed a bunch of places where it looked like mini crop circles. I took a walk and noticed them randomly here and there. It was hard to capture them adequately, but here goes:
Pretty odd, I admit. I dismissed the alien theory, but spent a few days trying to understand how they came about?
The answer came to me as I noticed a big old Tom Turkey, obviously on the prowl for a little turkey action. He puffed his feathers out in a handsome display sure to catch the ladies eye. Heck, even I found him to be attractive- in a turkey dinner kind of way!
I tried to get a better picture, but you will have to ignore Joe’s smoker in the foreground and my patio chair. Yes, that is a rock on the smoker… not sure why:
A wonderful display of turkey maleness! Tom’s gobbles and display were effective, because 3 ladies came to check him out:
Finally, the mystery of the crop circles are explained:
Hmmm… buy the sheer number of these circles around the place, I would say there should be lots of babies in the late spring. LOL Life on the ranch….
Enjoy your day! Hugs, Carla
