A week and a half ago, I saw a turtle walking across the lawn. I thought it was a box turtle, as they are meant to be nesting now. When I first saw it I called to Allen, “Quick! Quick! Come see this!” He thought it was hilarious that I had told him to come quickly to see a turtle, but I swear the thing was speeding along.
A few todays ago when I was running, I saw something rooting about in the grass by the road. I stopped for a closer look. It was a porcupine. I’ve never seen one in the wild before. I didn’t stop long to look at it because I didn’t want to spook it.
The past few days, I’ve noticed that the liquid in my new hummingbird feeder has gone down. I thought it might be evaporating but then today I saw a hummingbird actually feeding from it (I also saw a squirrel trying to feed from it but that’s my fault for having it too close to a tree).
