The turtles are awake!

You know it's spring in the Pregger household when the turtles poke their heads out of their winter sleeping spots!  Vinnie and Shelley, shown below, have been awake for over a week.  And they are hungry after a long, cold, wet winter's hibernation.
That's Vinnie up on the garage step.  I'm not sure how he got up there.....Generally speaking, the turtles are not very good at climbing.

Lizzie, the last of the three, made an appearance last Friday.  So spring must truly be here!

And it is.  Flowers are blooming and the leaves and grass are that lovely new green color.  It's a beautiful time of year!

love the photos of your garden. Can you tell me where you purchased your water feature container?

Micki, we bought it at Green Mamas nursery in North Richland Hills, but they are no longer open. It's just a basin, a recirculating pump, a "fountain kit" which included the tubing and a "squirter", and a very big pot. I've seen similar pots at several local nurseries.
