I’ve always loved turtles, and I like little statuary like this in the garden that you come across when you walk the path. After adding the pond a few weeks ago, I knew we had to have a turtle too! So now we have three around the pond, and a little frog too!
I had two water turtles as pets when I was young. I wouldn’t mind having one again, except I remember how smelly they can get. These fake ones outside will do fine for now!
