Wild Turkey

Another favorite turkey!



Our fall favorites include, pumpkins, squash, apples, and Louisiana satsumas.


Curl up with a piece of pie tomorrow and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Pumpkin pie for breakfast is totally ok, it’s a vegetable! I have been lucky enough to see the  parade several times in person. It is such a treat, especially  with a turkey sandwich from Carnegie Deli afterwards!

Thank you to all of our followers, Thanksgiving marks the second anniversary of our On The Wall Blog. Thank you for following and commenting. We love to hear from you, keep it coming!


It’s Turkey Day!


Audubon’s Bird’s of America: The Wild Turkey Cock – Plate #1.

Mr. Audubon made The Wild Turkey Cock Plate #1. The image was drawn near St. Francisville where Mr. Audubon roamed the woods in the Felicianas. This is a framed Amsterdam Edition.  The Turkey is magnificent!
