Emydura macquarii macquarii
It’s been a long time since I blogged, it’s been even longer since I let our boys have a play in the front yard.
So this morning whilst Oscar was digging a hole and ‘planting’ leaves and Jenny was weeding, I sat with the turtles in the front yard, enclosed in their mobile digs. Which if you have forgotten I made and you can read all about it here.
I got out a camping chair, slouched down and soaked up the sun while the turtles tried to escape and birds swooped above.I also took some snaps. If you are wondering the turtles turn 7 years old in 2 days and we have had them for 6 years!!!
So I could show Oscar the mad skills the turtles have, I placed each of them on their backs so Oscar could see them flip over.
Other things I did today included turning a carved wooden letter ‘d’ into an ‘a’. Eating a chicken burger and taking Oscar for a drive in Jenny’s car.
