It’s the end of summer in my neighbor Bob’s sidewalk garden, which now takes up the front of four row houses in South Philadelphia. Bob takes care of the garden and koi pond. The only thing he asks is permission to place a beautiful flowering plant in front of your house, which adds badly needed curb appeal in an urban environment. There’s a new addition to the koi pond this year: A big, sleepy turtle. He just appeared one day. Do you think he’s a magic turtle? Bob thinks he’s blind. All I know is that he’s very lazy. Once I saw him on a Lilly pad and thought he might have died. Then I realized that if Turtle had gone to the great hereafter, it is likely he would have fallen off the Lilly pad. But he bobbed up and down on that Lilly pad for quite some time. Turtle is lazier than a house cat. If you don’t believe me, try to sit through this video.
Do you think Turtle is really blind?
Enjoy the slideshow.
A very nice post and I enjoyed reading because its related to log cabins which I am using for residential as well as commercial uses. Log cabins and summer houses are great place to live and I have been exploring them since a long time. I just subscribed to your blog and hope more good posts like this coming soon. Thank You
Thanks. Turtle’s eyes have opened and he can see! I don’t think he’ll ever be able to drive though. Not that that’s bad.
