Neighborhood Snippets

It's getting to be pretty hot in Southern California.  Our spring is beginning to resemble an East Coast summer.  We've had rainstorms recently, but it's still very arid.  However, the plants are in heavy bloom and the turtles are out sunbathing all day.  Lucky reptiles.


  1. adorable turtles and beautiful pictures! I wish I could take pictures like you do :)
    I was actually thinking of doing this kind of "post" on my blog, i think it will be a good fit for my personal blog.
    kudos for your photography! :)

  2. Aw cute! Are there turtles in a random public pond or are they someone's pets?

  13. The turtles are so cute, but I find that since they can be so still I never know at first glance if they are really or not!
