One of those times I wish I’d had my camera

When Jerry went out to clip some thyme from our garden for tonight’s dinner, he found an unexpected visitor in front of our rosemary bush – a rather large turtle.

Anthony, who recently has developed a fascination with all things nature, was enthralled. He stood watch as the turtle poked its head out of its shell and then quickly pulled it back in, asked tons of questions and even tried to pick it up, an act that we quickly discouraged.

But my favorite moment came when Ant laid on the ground beside his new friend, curling himself into a ball.

“Look, Mama,” he said. “I’m a turtle, too.”
