Turtle, toad and robin visit the garden

Another muddy night in the GARDEN - YEAH!

If I could drive past the garden store and not stop and check what was on sale and get just one more thing - I would have people asking me if I was OK?

Tonight I got a bale of hay, a few herbs to finish the must haves, a few geraniums and of course the Coyote Urine.
I started after dinner by pulling the tray from beneath the bench on the frontporch. Something wiggled and I knew it was not a worm. I looked closer and it was a toad about 2 inches in diameter just hanging out in the potted plants. Probably because they get watered everyday.

So I carried it back to the garden and he plopped down into the dirt. I saw him later but he had turned a browner color to match the dirt - clever little animal.

Then as I was searching for the right place to plant some dill and some fennel I saw a huge turtle.

I am not sure but I think this is the same turtle from last year only a year older. He came and went as I mulched everything. As I was looking to see how the sprinkler was working I saw him headed back into the garden. Wonder if it s a she and looking for a nesting place for a few eggs. Better research that soon and find out what they like to eat. Turtle may be going on a field trip to the creek bed... Unless they like mosquitos!

I also have one sage plant blooming.

I would have taken a picture of the roses blooming but I ran out of battery.
Today someone was driving a little too fast and hit our mailbox. The dear Husband has a new one already installed. The woman said it was sleep deprivation - might have been cell phone attention deficit. Oh well - mailboxes are an easy fix - considering other accidents I have heard about.
The hot shower is calling my name. Tomorrow is the annual mammogram. If you have not had your annual mammogram - stop what you are doing - go and get the phone number of your facility and write it down - now decide what time you are calling them and get the exam set up. You deserve healthy breasts and a regular exam ensures this - start between the ages of 35 to 40 and do them regularly. Please and thank you.
I have a friend who is in the hospital for some health issues. She is collecting prayers. God will know her name. She has a son graduating from Marine Corp Boot Camp on Friday. She will not be there because she is in the hospital. Like I said she is collecting prayers... Offer one to God for her - I sure would appreciate that. I have known her for 40 years, she is my best friend.
Peace to you this night and all nights.
