Thirsty Thursday

Hello, folks. Virginia feels like it’s in the swing of summer, so of course our thoughts turn to swimmin’ holes. A regular reader sent a photo of a beautiful one from her neck of hte woods, which does happen to be Virginia as well. Thanks over there!

The Yellow Iris are pretty. Though this old squirrel got to thinking about that little turtle I saw last week. You see, these here plants grow thick around the perimeter of this pond. And if you’ve ever tried to gnaw through an iris stalk, you know they’re stiff as cardboard.

How’s a turtle to walk himself in or out of there? On the flip side, if he can wedge himself in, he’s got a darned good hiding spot!
