Little Visitors in Our Yard!

We've had a couple of little visitors in our yard over the past few days.  The first was a turtle, and George saved his life!  Thursday, as George was driving home from work, he saw a little turtle walking in the middle of the road, he stopped, picked him up and brought him to safety.  That little guy didn't understand how dangerous being on the road really is, and he turned right around and ventured out into the road again.  George picked him up and brought him to the opposite side, thinking maybe that's where he wanted to be... Nope, he turned around and ventured right back out onto the road once again.  So George picked him up and took him to our house.  We got to visit with him for a while, then he brought him to the wooded area along the creek, at the back of our yard, where it's nice and safe, and quite a distance from the road, and he let him go.

(¸.•´ (¸.•` ♥  Yesterday, when I got home from work, I was just about to sit down to check my email when our dogs, Izzy and Emmi started going crazy, barking and looking out the front window.  Someone they didn't know had pulled into our driveway and he was walking toward our front door.  I went outside, and he asked if he could take a picture of a baby raccoon in one of our Apple trees near the edge of our front yard.  He said that when he was driving by, the baby raccoon caught his eye when he scampered across the grass.  He slowed down to watch him, and when he pulled into our driveway, the raccoon ran up the tree.  I ran inside and grabbed my camera so that I could take a few pictures too.

(¸.•´ (¸.•` ♥  All kinds of fun wildlife to see when you live in the country!  We have lots of visitors... Deer, wild turkeys, opossum, chipmunks, rabbits, black squirrels, red squirrels... They all have homes in our woodpile, and in the woods along the creek.  Izzy does her best to keep them away, but they are out there... And we see them, a lot of times in the early morning, just before the world wakes up... Just before we let Izzy and Emmi outside... It's a great sight!

  6. Loved seeing the pictures of your visitors. So glad your husband saved the little turtle. If he didn't bring it home, I'm sure it would have gotten run over.

    Cute raccoon too!
