It was the first day of warm weather with temps in the 60′s. The weather brought out crowds to the lake along with another sure sign of warm weather, the first turtle egg hatch. I found this little guy scurrying across the path toward lake harriet. This looks like a little painted turtle that is slightly larger than the quarter added for prospective. One of my old colleagues used to give out an award that he called “The Turtle” with the adage; people are like turtles, we only get ahead when we stick our necks out. Amen to that!
Today the forecast calls for rain and the potential for snow. Oh my this has been a challenging winter/spring!
