    If the turtle is digging with its back legs its female and burying eggs. There should be a mound somewhere. You obviously have a safe place for them to be so secure. Look out for baby turtles!
    Yeah, we kind of assume she was a she. Dug quite a lot in the mulch but we think she changed her mind about things when she dug through to the landscape fabric and couldn't dig deeper. I went out and double checked. - no eggs - I think it just wasn't right. Otherwise, protect I would. I have monitored snake egg nests, bird nests, saved baby birds, saved snakes, fed the wild rabbits, tried not to hate the huge armadillo who digs in the landscape giant holes right through fabric, the squirrel that taunts and chatters at the cats, etc. It is pretty active around here. But then, that is Florida for you.

    Here the grass just dies, normally. Doesn't even go brown, it just disappears. There's hope this year, we had the wettest March and April in forever.

    I admire all of you whose homes with a great view. But in Hong Kong if I am a billionaire, I can have a great view from my home too. Cos I'm not so that I have to live in a small apartment where is crowded and noisy.

    If you don't have a great view out your back door, just post a picture of what your neighborhood looks like, no matter if its city life or rural or suburban!
    For example, here's a road side stand in our town that sells red chile ristras!

    Or construct a small mountain on top of the apartment in your spare time like the Professor Zhang Lin.

    Actually I am cheating; what I see from the back window is rooftops (and a few trees) only. The canal is close though.

    Default Looking out my back door...

    our first snow fall as sputtered out for December in Ajax beside Lake Ontario. We tend not to get many snow falls here. You definitely have more snow in the desert than we do.


    A literal predawn picture out the back door of the deck and only the dogs had been out thus far.....notice the little paw prints.
