      I thought it was a piece of algae on the lily pad until I looked closer.

      Definitely. We get a lot of them here because of the big pond in back, but most of them are bigger than a quarter.

      How cute is that!
      I wish we had more turtles around here... I've never seen one in the wild.

      You have never seen a wild turtle? Would have thought they would have been all over the US.

      I've read that there's a couple of different types in Washington state but they're rare.
      I've lived in this area my whole life (60+ years) and I've never seen one except in a pet store.

      One year in my old greenhouse that had sand up under one of the benches I found 4 baby box turtles that had hatched out and they were tiny
      "most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song
      still in them."
      I wish I could sing

      OK.TN.
