Friday the 19th Part 2

Well, since it was so nice, Andrea decided to blow off the gym and we went to the Arnold Arboretum to take a quick walk before sunset. You never know... there might be some turtles and she too can see some winter herps!

It had cooled of a bit, but there were some avians out enjoying themselves...

There were even some goldfish splashing around in the pond!

But were there any herps?

Why yes! A lone Painted Turtle was catching the last rays of Winter sun! We could barely make him out, but there he was!

We rounded out the short walk with some lovely flowers.

Crocuses, turtles and happy birds. Adios, Winter!
