here comes the sun

Northeast Ohio has a history of strange springtimes - either we get a week of perfectly mild days which leads directly into the full heat of summer or a seemingly endless string of rainy days. This year has been cool and wet, which leads to a great rush of gardening activity when the weather breaks and the sun comes out from behind the clouds. By the time that day arrives, the garden is overgrown with weeds and the perennials are already up - makes for an amusing game of "Did I plant that or...?" The labels are usually long lost and by the time you yank the bee balm out of the soil it's too late...

Anyway, yesterday was one of those days - I pulled weeds, planted nasturtium and chamomile seeds and had a little celebration with Myra. It was her first day outside since last year.

NOM NOM NOM!

I ate a worm once, but I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as Myra seems to.

Myra has such a serious mien when eating.

Egads! Carnivore turtles!

She really puts the munch on them, doesn't she?

TOO cute ! What type of turtle is she ? She's darling. Loki wants to play with her.

I prefer fried worms, but these seem so much fun I might almost try them raw.

On the other hand, that's one fine turtle you got there.

OK, woman, what's the name of your Youtube Channel? This could get fun, fast! It's not just all worm death and reptillian repast!

Just found the channel. Congrats. Your movie making skills are somewhere between Marlin Perkins Wild Kingdom and the original "Journey to the Center of the Earth."
