The wonder of a box turtle

My son & his daughter found a small box turtle yesterday near the goats pen.They wrote her name on it as we had done for our son years ago,then let the turtle go under the masses of roses & dame`s rocket flowers.




We have seen his turtle off & on over the years,so this must be a good breeding place for them.

How sweet!! I love to see them too, and always stop if they're in the road to help them cross the road, or take them home with me if they aren't in a safe place.

We do too.I believe I read somewhere that they have to have a hard service to breed on,like a road.Numerous times I`ve stopped on our road to remove one on top of the other to the side of the woods.Last year someone ran over one up here,so I`m always on the lookout for them this time of year.phyllis

Hi Phyllis~
I loved the pictures, and your story of seeing your son's turtle. I have a fond spot in my heart for them. I had one of those little ones you used to see for sale in department stores as my very first pet. I was about 6 years old. That was before my long history with birds...

Hi Phyllis,
There's something quite neat about turtles. What a neat post about a great outing for your son and granddaughter. I remember one time I was cycling on a highway in Alabama when I saw a turtle in the middle of the road. I got off of my bike, and picked the turtle up to carry him away from the highway when he whizzed all over my cycling shoes ;-) They never really smelled the same after that. Haha.
