Look what hatched by the pond! New baby turtles joined our farm and our new front pond! How exciting! Now we have laying and hatching native turtles in both our back pond and in our front yard pond..
Hubby had called me over as the floating plants where in bloom and as I can over to look at them.. I saw this wee striped head and went.. YES and did a mental bounce in place (I can’t bounce yet) and went.. I need my camera..!!!
It swam over and rested on the stem joining the floating plants.. hubby headed off to find some small peices of wood that he thought such a little turtle could climb and I kept watching and snapping photos.
I just love how much all the difference plants we have put into the pond are growing and thriving! Both myself, the land and the pond was grateful for the rain day taht soaked in and helped fill the pond back up a good solid 10 inches!
Then I saw the second one.. over in a different spot of the pond.. I think I saw a third but it appeared to have dived and then come up in the plants.
