It's truly Spring! The first brave turtle appeared, basking on the log, and the wood frogs and peepers are in full chorus at Frog Song Pond. Perhaps they are cheering for Sarah L. Thomson who just received the Maine Lupine Award for her wonderful novel, Dragon's Egg. A must read! Congratulations to Sarah.
I see turtles in my sleep. There are over 70 of them--all cut and pasted--in Turtle Splash. And the new book has them, too. I have spent the last couple of days making papier mache turtles that I can bring along when I present programs for children. The turtles will bask in the portable pond. Sound strange? Check back for a photo soon.
