Wildlife Visitors

 Again this year, the butterfly bushes have created a great environment for butterflies.  Our four bushes are 10 feet tall and almost that wide.  They are covered with white and purple flowers attracting a bunch of butterflies.  I love watching the butterflies float from flower to flower.  Yesterday I noticed a surprise guest in the driveway.  This giant turtle about a foot long was waiting when I came home.  I took a quick picture before the turtle moved on.  I haven't seen one of these giant turtle in several years when we noticed a couple laying eggs in our yard.
