I've told you all in the past that I always see the male turtles first. Well this year was a little different but that is because we disturbed Miss Beauty by working on the faerie's garden earlier than usual. She has been in hiding ever since because......da, da, dah.....(cue the mystery music)....the boyz are lookin' for some u-haul trailer action.
Here are pictures of 4 of the randy little charmers. Unfortunately, I have more boyz than girls and will probably have to find homes for a couple of the males because they tend to not only drive the females nuts but also start fighting and injuring each other. Sorta like having too many roosters....only Sunday dinner with these guys is out of the question, if you get my drift.
Also included are some photos of some of the new flowering plants we have added to our backyard project. Hope you enjoy them. I smelled the Star Jasmine before I saw it at the nursery and just had to have it. It smells divine and I hope it will thrive in it's new mushroom pot....to be painted this afternoon.
