Box Turtle Rescue

 Earlier this week I walked by the gate to the back yard and saw a strange site.  A baby box turtle had gotten in a serious predicament.  Apparently he was trying to get through the fence by climbing over the bottom bar and through one of the holes in the chain link fence.  The poor thing was stuck with both front and back feet off the ground and was unable to go forward or back.  I pulled him back through the fence and sent him on his way.  Meanwhile over by the water barrels, I grabbed the hose to water some potatoes and a gray colored frog came along for the ride.  He didn't jump off until I put the hose back in its usual place.
