Myrtle the Turtle

Sunday, June 13th, 2010

Look what we saw early one morning last week:

This determined little mama climbed out of the swamp (what looks like a whole mess of weeds above, not to be confused with the GIANT THISTLE that’s about to take over our grill) and up a fairly steep slope to dig a hole in our backyard to lay her eggs.

I don’t think she much appreciated me staring and taking pictures while she was hard at work…or maybe it was the two fixated kitties at my feet who were just BEGGING me to open the door so they could go investigate.

Okay, Madre, what type of turtle babies should we be expecting?

He looked a little cold and hungry.  Didn’t know what to do about the cold and of course I couldn’t find any carrots, so I put out some bird seed and broccoli.  Hopefully that will do.

PS…I love our backyard.

I might be as obsessed as the cats.

We have two of these crazy guys, mooching off our seed spatter.

And this guy? He’s cool with that.
