I spy Easter eggs!

We celebrate Jesus coming back from the dead!
Wait, like a zombie?!

No! You must have The Walking Dead season finale on the brain!

…”Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen…Luke 24:5-6

Finally some buds!

Spring

Sunshine and a cool breeze!

Box Turtle

I Spy a Box Turtle

The Spy found a box turtle in the woods and brought him (or her?) to the garden to play awhile. Turtles in Missouri burrow down in leaves/dirt for the winter so he (or she?) was very dirty! You can’t really tell from the pictures but the shell had very bright yellow markings, so I think it is an Ornate Box Turtle but could also be a Three Toed Box Turtle. After observation, the turtle was safety returned to the woods (and hands were washed!)
