It’s another Spring in my neighbor Bob’s sidewalk garden. Bob is getting a banana tree ready to pot and plans to get a palm tree. The koi pond is stocked with minnows and one laid back turtle. Bob fished a turtle out of the pond last Fall and brought it inside for the winter, but it died. So he was surprised when he saw Turtle paddling happily around in the water. Turtle was in the pond all winter and Bob didn’t know it. A happy turn of events, but when he puts water lilies in the pond, he will have to protect them from Turtle’s voracious appetite.
