An Old Friend


It has been hard to find something to post on my blog as my plants are just beginning to come back after being frozen for the second year in a row.

This week I had my first turtle visit for this year.

I thought it was a new turtle I have never seen before, but when I enlarged the photos, the turtle was my old friend “Turtle with a Hole in its Shell”.

It is good to know my old turtle friend is doing fine and still hanging out here.

    The turtle is very colorful. It must like your yard.

    What a handsome one — and what fun that you could recognize him. I’ve seen a few at the edge of the pond at Lafitte’s Cove, and I saw one crossing a local road (safely, thank goodness) but it seems like their reemergence is just beginning. Now that you have turtles, can flowers be far behind?

    Aww, so glad to know your friend found its way back to say hello!

  4. What a handsome friend you’ve got there. The shell is a wonderful shade of polished Narawood, which is a mahogany from the Philippines.

    Sweet, I didn’t realize they were so small!

  6. Pretty shell. Do you know where they go in winter? I have one around with two spots on the shell, haven’t seen him this year.

    Glad your buddy is back. I think we gardeners have a tendency to become rather fond of our wild visitors.
