A Snapper?

I am not a fan of wild creatures, especially when they are roaming in my yard.

They belong "out in the wild", gallavanting where they don't scare the "bejeezus" out of people like me.

I think the garden snakes have finally realized this - after one was "surprised" by the lawn mower.

The deer have gone back to the woods now that the warm weather has arrived.

And now THIS was strolling around the landscaping:
She better not have laid eggs and better not have any friends looking for her. She is now in the pond and she better stay there!

Now if I can figure out how to quiet the bullfrogs at night and get the swallows to fly to another neighborhood, I'll be able to go back outside again.


  1. I hope that's not you holding that guy in the photo. Those things are pretty wicked, they'll bite your finger off in a heartbeat. But I would take one of them over a snake any day!

  2. Is it safe to assume you aren't going camping any time soon? :o)

  3. I would much rather a turtle than the woodchuck my dog decided to make a gift of on my back lawn. I didn't even know what the heck it was! I had to look it up online! I am hoping there are no nests or babies or anymore of them. They are totally gross looking and it freaks me out that this ugly thing was in my yard.

  4. Funny! We just "relocated" two turtles in our yard last night. Don't know why they would want to wander here when they have a perfectly good pond not too far away.
    No great tips for the wax. Just don't let it dry too long. I did that with one of my pieces and about never got it to buff out.

  5. We don't have many critters in our yard (not that I know of anyway). I was out walking last year and came across a big turtle in the road. I didn't want it to get hit so I picked it up to move it....bad was a snapping turtle and it wasn't happy!! It didn't bite me but let's just say I wasn't so willing to help keep it safe after that.
