I’m always excited when wildlife visits the farm. Other than our daily bunny sightings, it’s been pretty quiet lately. As I turned into the lane Sunday after coffee with friends, I was greeted by this girl protecting her bit of turf. There are plenty of leafy-green weeds for her to feed on, so I hope she enjoyed herself. Turtles are out and about these days as they make their way to lay eggs. The back of her shell wasn’t muddy, so her journey apparently isn’t over.
