Maryland Terp?

Back at the end of May, I found this turtle in the grass late one afternoon after Jeff had mowed. I was astounded he had survived the experience and moved him to the back of the yard hoping he would find something to eat or at least a little shade...after I let the boys hold him which was probably as harrowing an experience as avoiding the mower.

Then, yesterday, I discovered this turtle in my front flowerbed. I think he likes us.


  1. I love it how Griffin has a different color band-aid EVERYTIME you post. He's quite the character!

  2. It's so sad. Jeff has worked really hard with him this summer on the banging and it had really almost faded completely. Then he left and I just couldn't dedicate all of my attention to Griffin at night. I actually had to go out and buy more bandaids!

  3. Their world just keeps expanding! The turle must like little boys.
