“I am not good at saying ‘no’,” says Terry Cook, a perennial gardening volunteer. “I love to help people, and I love to educate people about plants and gardens.” It’s a good thing, because Terry can’t refuse a gardening plea. Six garden-related organizations in N.H. and Florida are recipients of his good-heartedness.
My family and I were out walking through our neighborhood the other day when we noticed what looked like a bottle cap in the grass. To our surprise, that bottle cap was actually a tiny painted turtle, Chrysemys picta.
Even though it wasn't far from a pond this hatchling was unfortunately lifeless. Because of this, we were able to take a close look at the turtle. The amazing markings and patterns that nature produces never cease to amaze me.
