I have counted at least five painted turtles hanging out on a bale of barley straw I put in the pond to help keep it clean.
We think of turtles as slow, but these guys see me coming as soon as I step out of my house and dive for cover faster than the eye can see.
A massive explosion in the frog population.
And if you're wondering about my little catfish, well so do I. I've seen nary a whisker, but I am not sure I would. I just have to take it on faith that they are in there doing their catfish thing and living their catfish lives.
