Size Matters

Yesterday as I was returning home from a girlie doctor appointment I was travelling through the park right near my house where this incident occurred. There was a car pulled over to the side of the road with two kids looking at something. As I got closer I saw that it was a massive, gargantuan, humongous, leviathan of a snapping turtle. Dang, I didn't have my camera with me so I sped up the hill to my house, ran in, peed, grabbed my camera and went back down. Before I continue my story enjoy some pics from my garden...

Coral bells, one of my earliest bloomers.

A rhododendron we just put in this spring. I honestly don't know how people can not have flowers in their yard. Well, I do actually. They're a lot of work but so worth it. Now back to the turtle story....

I jumped into my car and headed back down to the park, total elapsed time, less than five minutes. I got down there and the freaking turtle was GONE! How fast can a gigantic turtle move??
