More in the back yard

Just thought I would share more back yard fun in today's post. On Monday while my son and I were outside, we got to spend time with a tortoise for a little while who lives at the edge of our yard. (I always just call it a turtle, but turtles live in water, tortoises on land, and I can't help but say turtle anyway!)
It's "home", under the edge of the fence. See it peeking out?

At first it was hiding inside it's shell when we went near it. After a few minutes, it stopped being scared and was eating shrubs/grass near us. I don't remember the last time I have seen one eating. It's kind of funny. I even took video of it eating. It also went #2 while walking back towards it's home. So now I know what that looks like too. ;) Eww!

I also took a couple shots of birds in a tree. Not the best detailed pictures, but you get the idea.

P.S. I think you should call him Morty. You know, Morty the tortie. That way you can stop calling it Myrtle the Turtle. ;)

Aw How much fun for Kavi!! I did not know that turtle-tortoise fact! I love your new pillows and all the red vintage stuff too. Red is my favorite color.
