He Has Risen

Magnus, Patty's Three-toed Box Turtle, that is.

Come late fall, going on fourteen years now, Magnus digs himself in for the winter.

And come spring time he digs himself out.

He is a much more reliable indicator of spring time weather than any ground hog.

Patty, fretfully keeps a vigil each spring, worrying if Magnus will once again rise from the earth.

And it was she who first spotted him today, and joyfully texted out the above image.

Happy Spring!
