Box Turtle

Small Slow Life

Here’s lookin’ at you kid………..or………actually, I think he’s saying “would you please wash my patio?” I’m sure he’s had better portraits.

Western Box Turtle, to be more exact. A first sight of one of these hinged shells closing up is a bit of a surprise. When they decide it’s safe and put legs out and back in motion, they move much faster than you would expect.

Now how can I make a turtle-inspired bag? I’ll put my ‘thinker’ on it………I think I’ll skip the legs but I’ve learned to never say “never”……..!
