Last year The Unconventionals and I marked a friendly, cat food loving, turtle with turquoise nail polish and she showed up again this year. If you look really closely, you will see her polish markings. It is too early to confine her for our annual Fourth of July Turtle Race so we will hope she sticks around long enough to participate again this year.
Last, and possibly least, we have a pair of barn swallows trying to build a mud nest on a light fixture right outside our patio door. They are messy, noisy, and territorial. Pop and I are standing our ground and hope to win this fight. We have removed their next five times and five times they have rebuilt...I just looked out, and they are started on their six attempt! Stubborn!
As I am finishing this post, I heard a crunching sound at the cat's food dish and sure enough, the turtle made it back for brunch today. I love so many things about the farm and the wildlife is right up there! Pop and I even thanked God in our morning prayer time for the peacocks visit...and Lord, about those barn swallows!
