Lee came in and told me he found another box turtle. While they are not on the Endangered Species list, they are considered threatened. Turtles, by their very nature, have a hard time getting out of the way of cars. Heck, deer have a hard time getting out of the way of cars in this part of Virginia. So I always get a kick seeing them on our farm. I try to move them to places where I know we don't cut hay or mow and hope they take up residence there.
I even make Lee stop so I can get out and assist turtles crossing back country roads.
This morning was foggy and while I drank my coffee and read the paper I could hear turkeys gobbling at each other. Yesterday morning I heard geese flying overhead. Outside the window bluebirds are squabbling over who gets which house this year.
And this is why I live here. Yes, even with the hot, humid summer. This makes it all worth it.
