The spring of the 5th year i decided to fix/ change a few things that were not as i invissionsed them. And in true Mother natures style she threw a couple curve balls herself. 5 days ago i spotted a Painted Turtle in the pond. LOVE SEEING it swim around. As long as i don't find all my plants chopped down and tail fins nipped at . They are more than welcome at the pond.. And yes i said they for today as im sitting enjoying the pond and the turtle i looked across the pond and saw a turtle. To WHICH I SAID WAIT HE could not have got across the pond that fast and i was right as low and behold there's now two Turtles!!!!!!! Again same rules SO long as the pond isn't destroyed they are more than welcome

That's an encouraging sign... the turtle didn't snap at that fish that swam right by it.

The only turtle we got was a snapper it got relocated. Our other turtles are land dwellers.

This is so fun! Wouldn't it be cool if they were a male and female pair and had offspring? I am imagining GBBUDD sitting by the pond, trying to be all gruff and saying "if they behave, they can stay" -- while a bunch of super cute baby turtles swim around all over the place! :D :D :D

I have little doubt that they are a flower pot and a fan as I have already seen them fighting like an old school husband a wife.... trying to be politically correct and not assume they want to be called husband a wife so flower pot and fan was what I got from them

So do turtles tend to stick together and follow each other when one decides to go off and find new digs? Must be the case as how would two show up pretty much together at around the same time?

Animals can sense water and I don't know about turtles but most other animals can smell a females miles away some literally.

I love the reflections in your crystal clear water!
So many say a bog isn't even a filter I say popy cockadoodle do .

Oh man spell check is way to funny some times. it didn't like popy and switched it out for pops and it didn't like cockadoodle do and changed that to the first for letters . It was good for a deep belly lol

I can't imagine how much baking soda I'd need to. Boost 12000 gallons or more
