One of the kids said they saw a turtle on the driveway this week so I said “take some pictures!” It was a simple box turtle. It didn’t stay around very long before heading off into the bushes. I guess it didn’t want me to take pictures!

  2. I use to see turtles around a lot, but guess building of new homes/businesses has run most of them off. Thanks for hosting again this week. My entry is a combination of outside and inside - hope that is ok.
